lyrics

I tried to build my house on the rock
but my spirit didn't come from what some might call sturdy stock
I tried to fix my eyes on the prize unseen
went down to the Jordan and I couldn't stay clean
baptized in the Jordan I could not stay clean

I tried to mend my wicked ways
I tried to walk in the light I got blinded by the haze
I prayed I begged for better days
I could not shed these wicked ways

I was searching for some shelter and that shelter never came
I was staring into heaven I was drowning in the rain
While some men pray for fortune others respite from pain
Have mercy have mercy on me

I tried to walk that narrow path
somewhere my feet they slipped and I wandered in the grass
And like all things you know this too is gonna pass
I bid thee farewell on narrow path

I was searching for some shelter and that shelter never came
I was staring into heaven I was drowning in the rain
While some men pray for fortune others respite from pain
Have mercy have mercy on me
