My Own Man

Lord, Iíll give you my all as long as Iím in control.
Iíll go to the church tho the preacher is dull.
Iíll work in a food line, Iíll wear a smile.
But donít expect me to do that self denial.

ĎCause Iím my own man, I know what I need.
Salvationís just a prayer - not a seed.

Lord, Iíll go for you where I think I should go.
Iíll serve the needy in the ways that I know.
I donít need to leave my self behind.
To deny myself would make me so blind.

ĎCause Iím my own man, I know what I need.
Salvationís just a prayer - not a seed.

Lord, you said, ďTake up your cross and follow Me.Ē
So I bought a big gold one, I wear it for all to see.
But my lifeís no different than it used to be.
Iím a perfect example of modern churchianity.

ĎCause Iím my own man, I know what I need.
Salvationís just a prayer - not a seed.

Lord, Iíll be a good Christian in my own way.
Iíll live with gusto and seize the day.
Decide what to do with each passing hour,
Have a form of godliness, deny the power.

ĎCause Iím my own man, I know what I need.
Salvationís just a prayer - not a seed.

Lord, you said, ďTake up your cross and follow Me.Ē
But you know, my Lord, that way is just too hard for me.
Compromise and mask, they just suit me.
I like living here in blind hypocrisy.

ĎCause Iím my own man, I know what I need.
Jesus died for you, not for me.
ĎCause Iím my own man, I know what I need.

But, hey, wait a minute.
Lifeís not what Iíve expected.
Itís gotten way too hard.

Itís so empty being my own man, whoís got what I need?
Jesus, make me Your man, Youíve got what I need.

Jesus, make me Your man, Youíve got what I need.
Salvation starts with prayer, then You lead.

Jesus, I am Your man, You are all that I need.
Salvation starts with prayer, then You lead.

Jesus, I am Your man, You are all that I need.
Salvation starts with prayer, then You lead.

Jesus, I am Your man, You are all that I need.
