Why me Lord?
What have i ever done,
To deserve even one,
Of the pleasure i've known,
Tell me lord,
What did i ever do,
That was worth lovin' you,
For the kindness you've shown,

Chorus:
Lord help me Jesus,
I've wasted it so help me Jesus,
I know what i am,
But now that i know,
That i needed you so help me Jesus,
My souls in your hand,

Verse 2:
Try me lord,
If you think there's a way,
I can try to repay,
All i've takin' from you,
Maybe lord,
I can show someone else,
What i've been through myself,
On my way back to you,

Chorus (x2)

Jesus, my soul's in your hands

Military career[edit]
Kris, under pressure from his family, ultimately joined the U.S. Army and achieved the rank of Captain. He became a helicopter pilot after receiving flight training at Fort Rucker, Alabama. He also completed Ranger School. During the early 1960s, he was stationed in West Germany as a member of the 8th Infantry Division.[10] It was during this time that he resumed his music career and formed a band. In 1965, when his tour of duty ended, Kristofferson was given an assignment to teach English Literature at West Point.[11] Instead, he decided to leave the Army and pursue songwriting. His family disowned him because of this decision and they never reconciled with him.[citation needed] They saw it as a rejection of everything they stood for, in spite of the fact that Kristofferson has said he is proud of his time in the military, and received the AVA (American Veterans Awards) "Veteran of the Year Award" in 2003.[12][13]

OP, try this one. A little chicky, but of a similar vein. Her voice really carries it for me. I'm not particulary religious, but great tune:

Maybe song lyrics aren't your forte.

That is a powerful song. Guy Penrod from the Gaither Vocal Band does an awesome cover of it.

It's a powerful song, because it's sung by a non-believer who's damn near questioning his existence.
