Why didn't I listen and go
Whenever I heard you call?
Why didn't I let my pride die,
let the walls fall,
And share the love of Jesus Christ?
What will it take?
Another life to pass me by?
How will I know next time
I won't plug my fingers in my ears
And ignore their desperate cries?
Lord, forgive me, I am so sorry
Have mercy on my wasted time.
Burn a passion deep inside me
That refuses to commit such a crime.
Let not one perish hopeless
When I harbor the Hope inside.
Dedicated to Candace. I am so sorry I didn't offer you Hope.
