Lord Please Deliver Me From Myself – Melody Balk & David Walker

It ain’t good and it ain’t right
Bein’ myself’s givin’ me a hard life
Doing things my way get’s in the way
Of surrendering myself to your amazing grace
So since I’ve been failing at everything else
Lord please deliver me from myself

I let my armor down and Satan’s under my skin
I’m feelin’ like Daniel in the lion’s den
I wanna be more like you every day
But every time I turn around I’m in my own way
Make me anew make me somebody else
Lord please deliver me from myself

I wanna see what’s wrong and do what’s right
I wanna be free from the selfishness that’s in my life
I wanna lay my will down in the path of your light
And crucify my ways to a resurrected life

I’m feelin’ like Jonah when you told him to say
Tell the folks to turn to me in Nineveh
Just like me Jonah ran the other way
‘Till a whale ate him up in the raging waves
Must a fish make a meal outta me for himself
Lord please deliver me from myself

Chorus

I’m feelin’ like Pharough’s chasin’ me
And I just jumped into the Red Sea
Before my pride lets the sea swallow me
I pray like Moses did down on bended knee
Get my pride outta here my ego back on the shelf
Lord please deliver me from myself

Lord please deliver me from myself
It’ just ain’t right
Lord please deliver me from myself
Lord please deliver me from myself
