Sweet Jesus - Lyrics

Inspite of all my sin and way with ways of living
I'm counting on you, Lord
You swore I'd be forgiven

Though I vow to never steal or covet or to murder
But one thing could break the deal
It's the thought that he could hurt her
It's the thought that he could take her life away

Someday my Lord shall return to thee
Sweet Jesus
For the perfect daughters running wild and free
Oh baby
For eternity within your loving arms
Oh Baby
For a life of promise... free of pain and harm

On the day I heard the news, I had no doubt of question
Let the lord protect the innocent
I knew I had to get him

Face down in the mud, a villain for a villain
My hands all wet with blood
Still I don't know if I killed him
Still I don't know if I took his life away
