Song Lyrics

"I Can Do Better"

by Joy Holden
Album: As Long as You Breathe

God I know I ask great things of you
Things I do not deserve
I cannot understand the sacrifice, of giving your only child, your only child
Sometimes I only come to you one hour in a week
Or I’m ashamed to say it’s just once a month
But now I’m giving you this plea

I can do better, I can do better
I can do better, I can do better
They’ll be more praying more obeying
More sharing, and more caring
More receiving and more believing in you my Lord
I can do better

God you gave life for all
Even though we still will fall
You love us way beyond, beyond human measure, way beyond measure
Sometimes I only worship you one hour in a week
Or I’m ashamed to say it’s just once a month
And I’m giving you this plea

I can do better, I can do better
I can do better, I can do better
They’ll be more praying more obeying
More sharing, and more caring
More receiving and more believing in you my Lord
I can do better

I need to stop denying - and start testifying, testifying! Oh Oh!

They’ll be more praying more obeying
More sharing, and more caring
More receiving and more believing in you my Lord
I can do better, I can do better
I can do better, I can do better, for Jesus My Lord, for Jesus My Lord
