Why Me Lord lyrics by Johnny Cash

Why me Lord is a cover of Cash's good friend Kris Kristopherson. Originally found on Kristofferson's Jesus Was a Capricorn, Cash's version appeared on the first album in the American Recordings series, American Recordings. Cash would go on to record another Kristopherson song for the series, namely, For the Good Times.

Lyrics

Why me Lord?
What have I ever done?
To deserve even one
Of the blessings I've known

Why me Lord?
What did I ever do?
That was worth love from You
And the kindness You've shown

Lord help me, Jesus
I've wasted it
So help me Jesus
I know what I am

Now that I know
That I've needed You
So help me Jesus
My soul's in Your hand

Try me Lord
If You think there's a way
That I can repay
What I've taken from You

Maybe Lord
I could show someone else
What I've been through myself
On my way back to You

Lord help me, Jesus
I've wasted it
So help me Jesus
I know what I am

Now that I know
That I've needed You
So help me Jesus
My soul's in Your hand
Jesus, my soul's in Your hand
