"My Jesus" lyrics - THE OAK RIDGE BOYS

"My Jesus"

My dear Jesus I need you by my side everyday
I cannot travel on this way alone
I'll confess that I tried by myself to no avail
Without you I fear I have failed

My Jesus, my Jesus
Hold to my hand
For no longer, alone can I stand
I'll confess that I trusted in myself much too long
My Jesus won't you lead me safely home

Self sufficient in all things had been my philosophy
I know now that this could never be
My mere deeds at their best could be counted not but lost
Now I must go in through the cross
