BEFORE I DIE

 

Oh Lord, My sweet Lord, Oh my Lord

Oh Lord, My sweet Lord

Thank you Jesus, for the Grace you have bestowed

 

For without you sweet grace, who knows where I would be

Thank you Jesus, for the strength in my heart

If you were to leave me now, it would rip my whole world apart

I once thought that I didn't need anybody, or anything

Now I know that I need you and the grace and strength you bring

 

Oh Lord, My sweet Lord, Let me testify

Let me thank you right now, before I die

Thank you Jesus, for the joy in my soul

 

You're the true center of my life and it's time that you've been told

Listen Jesus, You will always be my most trusted friend

Because when everyone else shuts me out you always let me in

I never thought I could be so unconditionally loved

I'm so grateful that you sacrificed your life for me

 

Oh Lord, My sweet Lord, Let me testify

Let me thank you right now, before I die

 

God so loved all mankind, from his side he sent you down

You came into this dying world, to spread salvation around

And now my spirit cries out, for you more and more

I've never felt so much love, in my heart before

You've put this tired soul of mine to rest

Unto you this I must wholly confess

 

Oh Lord My sweet Lord, Let me testify

Let me thank you right now, before I die
