lyrics: “Thank you for my shame”

Thank you for my shame

Lord knows   I’ve been afraid of crying

I’ve been afraid of dying   and being sent to hell

Lord knows    I’ve been afraid of speaking

of certain things  I was trained to never tell

The Lord knows I’ve been a sinner a blind fool so arrogant and tense

I sought for glory among people and to avoid all punishments
Lord I prayed for Santa to bring treasures. I obeyed with my hope on future blessings
How I craved for my shame to resolve to escape from my life as it was

I’ve said my life was not how it should be, then I blamed The Devil and prayed for mercy
Praise the Lord who taught me to repent, to admit my fear and withdraw contempt
For the one who had made my life that way- I thought it was the Devil, but I made a mistake
Oh my Lord you forgave my disrespect I admit you are Almighty & thank you for each lesson
I live the life that you give I learn the thing to forgive
is my own fear of your lead yet there is no lead but your own
The Lord has freed me from beliefs that I was trapped
He only gave me those beliefs to show me the contrast
Between the ways of the masses and the way of the blessed
Oh Lord even my shame is your grace So Lord, I thank you for my shame

I have stood on the steps of the temple and praised the Lord for his favor
I said “thank you that I’m not like them- Lord, you are such a wise savior
You judge the wicked and the terrified. You keep their screaming far away
They have hell and I have all the world. Oh thank you Lord, in your name I pray.”
Then I looked into the eyes of a sinner- and heard a humble prayer for forgiveness
My lips were quivering when I realized- a tear was falling down my face

I’ve said my life was not how it should be, then I blamed The Devil and prayed for mercy
Praise the Lord who taught me to repent, to admit my fear and withdraw contempt
For the one who had made my life that way- I thought it was the Devil, but I made a mistake
Oh my Lord you forgave my disrespect I admit you are Almighty & thank you for each lesson
I live the life that you give I learn the thing to forgive
is my own fear of your lead, yet there is no lead but your own
The Lord has freed me from beliefs that I was trapped
He only gave me those beliefs to show me the contrast
Between the ways of the masses and the way of the blessed
Oh Lord even my shame was your grace. So Lord, I thank you for my shame
So Lord, I thank you for my shame. So Lord, I thank you for my shame
Oh Lord even my shame was your grace. So Lord, I thank you for my shame

||:
I live the life that you give I learn the thing to forgive
is my own fear of your lead. yet there is no lead but your own :||

Oh Lord even my shame was your grace. So Lord, I thank you for my shame
