I have wanted all the wrong things
I can’t take one step farther

To the drug of pleasure
I have lost my way
And given up life’s treasure

I want to feel peace,
Joy, and happiness
To have insanity cease
And through Thy Son be blessed

I want to feel wrapped in love
As a submissive child
I want to rise above
Being base and wild

That is why this day
I have turned to Thee
To repent, cry, and pray
And discover the free me
