I Repent


This song was introduced to me by some dear friends of mine in the past few years and the words are so very powerful ~ they could be sung every day.  Steve Green does a heartfelt version of this, but I could not find it online to play for you, so I am sharing the lyrics with you here … from my heart to the Most High God.

I Repent

Verse 1:
I regret the hours I have wasted
And the pleasures I have tasted
That You were never in.
And I confess that though Your love is in me,
It doesn’t always win me
When competing with my sin.
CHORUS
And I repent, making no excuses.
I repent ~ no one else to blame.
And I return to fall in love with Jesus.
I bow down on my knees and I repent.
Verse 2:
I lament the idols I’ve accepted,
The commandments I’ve rejected
To pursue my selfish end.
And I confess I need You to revive me,
Put selfishness behind me
And take up my cross again.

CHORUS

And I repent, making no excuses.
I repent no one else to blame.
And I return to fall in love with Jesus.
I bow down on my knees and I repent.
And I return to fall in love with Jesus.
I bow down on my knees and I repent.

    Thanks for sharing the lyrics of this song. It hit me in the mouth — how can I be so quick to choose my own way when God has been so good to me. O the wonderful grace of Jesus reaching the most defiled — even me.
