Desperate by Lecrae

Woke up this morning too depressed and shamed to leave my bed
Can't stand to see my own reflection so I hang my head
Feel like a disappointment, like the scum of the earth
I'm so hurt I know you see I can't cover my dirt
My soul's dying, heart's weak and I can't even cry
I'm supposed to run to You, but why? I'm such an evil guy
The sun's shining, but for me it's the darkest of days
Try to pretend it never happened, but the guilt remains
I leave the house, it feels like everybody knows I did it
Feel like they're reading my mind and know the sin I committed
Through Your blood I'm acquitted, but my heart doesn't get it
Oh! God, I'm desperate for help 'cause I'm grieving your Spirit
I couldn't sing in the Sunday service, Lord, I felt fake
And when they started communion I just made an escape
I'm in need of Your grace, feels like You hid Your face
Lord, lead me back to cross and show me my sin's erased

...

My sin is ever before me, I turned my back on You
Oh! Father break and restore me to bring me back to You
My sin is ever before me, I turned my back on You
God break and restore me to bring me back to You


...

Have mercy on me God according to Your steady love
Wipe away my transgressions and wash me in Your blood
Create in me a clean heart, renew a right spirit
Don't hide your face from me, God; Your Presence: keep me near it


...

My sin weighed on me heavy, but I am no longer bound
As sure as Christ wears the crown, I know that grace will abound
And even when I feel lost, I know in You I am found
