THE SINNERS PRAYER

I hope we all get to heaven, but God’s Word is pretty clear.

Some will miss by eighteen inches…between their heart and their ear.

Oh, I know they will say we’re hypocrites and guess what…it’s probably true;

But we found grace, and we found mercy…I pray to God you find it too.

Are we really hypocrites? Now you could make the case.

Cause we screw up and now and then, we’re known to make mistakes.

But when we fall down, we get up again. We learn; we grow; we follow Him.

It’s what you don’t know I really fear. Cause our eyes can see and our ears can hear.

I don’t know how, but I remember when I prayed the sinner’s prayer to Him.

So, God to you my prayer will be…you’ll open their eyes so they can see.

So, if you want you can pray with me, “Lord Jesus I’ve sinned and I’ve lost my way.

I forgot your cross and the price you paid.

I have nothing to offer and nothing to give; I cry out for your mercy and my sins to forgive.”

Now if you really meant that prayer, there’s a party in heaven with angels there.

They’re singing and dancing around God’s throne, because one more child of His went home.

But there’s one more thing that you must do to seal your faith and prove it’s true… go tell someone what God has done. You once were blind but now you see.

You don’t know how, but you remember when you prayed a sinner’s prayer to Him.
