lyrics

Sins that I commit I can't admit
It's hard to believe that I'm still living
A selfish, evil-seeking hypocrite
It's hard to believe that I'm forgiven

Tell me if you see the hope inside of me
And the way I believe
I'll introduce you to the true me--the liar, the thief--
And why I am free
I will show you though I grow faint from envy and hate,
Jesus carries my weight
Open up your soul, relinquish control
And you will know

I received the light of Jesus Christ,
But I buried it inside
Sold myself a slave at a sorry price
To keep the darkness of my pride

Darkness took me over and controlled my every step
Addiction was adapting to my darkness and its depth
Love Abiding lifted me with lively, holy might
Chased away the darkness in a moment with His light

He picks me up and He holds me up
He lifts me up and picks me up
He holds me up when darkness tears me down

Tell me if you see the hope inside of me
And the way I believe
I'll introduce you to the true me--the liar, the thief--
And why I am free
I will show you though I grow faint from envy and hate,
Jesus carries my weight
Open up your soul, relinquish control
And you will know
