Just the way I am

Jesus Stood there

There on that cross

Praying I'd find him

And not bear his loss

He stood there

Blood dripped from his hands

Staining the ground

Cheers from the stands

The thorns cut him open

The wounds now so raw

And all just watched

In shockingly awe

He did this for us

Don't you now see

He said "Take this bread

In remembrance of me"

What happened to this world

Did people forget

The pain that he suffered

He never threw a fit

But when we fall down

Just scrape our knee

We curse his name

And scream to him

"I bet you don't remember me"

Do you actually think he forgot

All about you

Do you really believe that

I will tell you what I believe

I believe he is the Savior

The only one I need

I pray to him daily

My faith grows like a weed

Something else I believe

Black or white

Fat or thin

Gay or straight

Saint or sin

I am a creation

I am one of his

And he loves me

Just the way I am

I am human

And I break the rules

I am always reminded

Of how I should be

But I tell you what

I am only me

And me is what

He wants from me

Imperfectly sinning

Is all I can be

I walk in the clouds, I sing in the dust
