235 Repenting and Making a Fresh Start

Verse 1

Why did I not wake up?

Why did I not wake up?

I gave everything for status and fame;

I worked and preached, trying to build up my name,

not living out God’s words, only living for reward.

God’s words called out to me, but I hardened my heart.

So many desires and needs,

acting selfishly, despicably,

how could I have heard God

and His teachings to us?


Pre-chorus

Oh God! I have hurt You so deeply.

I’m too ashamed to live in Your presence,

enjoying Your love,

enjoying Your love.


Chorus

I can’t bear to look back

on the things of my past,

it was all ugliness

and rebelliousness.

Arrogant, self-important, wanton, and rash,

I gave play to my satanic nature.

My transgressions haunt me; in my confessions, I cry!

How can I make up for lost time?


Verse 2

Only through judgment do I see,

only through judgment do I see

I was a hypocrite. Though I swore undying love,

I couldn’t suffer trials; I repented so much,

swearing I’d completely change, yet it was all lies.

Without practicing truth, I would be exposed.

Through ordeals I come to repent,

my corruption I come to detest.

Remorseful, I fall before God.

I’ll start anew and comfort God’s heart.


Pre-chorus

Oh God! I have hurt You so deeply.

I’m too ashamed to live in Your presence,

enjoying Your love,

enjoying Your love.


Chorus

I can’t bear to look back

on the things of my past,

it was all ugliness

and rebelliousness.

Arrogant, self-important, wanton, and rash,

I gave play to my satanic nature.

My transgressions haunt me; in my confessions, I cry!

How can I make up for lost time?


Outro

With my whole heart

I will fulfill my duty well.

I will not let You down again!

I’ll put myself in You,

submit to Your rule.

I resolve to practice the truth,

accept Your judgment and cleansing,

do my duty to repay Your love for me!
