I'm Sorry (A Lament)
by TobyMac

Album: I'm Sorry Single


We started out strong
But somewhere along
We lost our way
Done things in Your Name
I m so ashamed
I don t have the words to say

We ve killed and destroyed
Stolen and blamed
All in Your Name
You told us to give
Told us to love
But we chose to take

You laid down Your life
Put power aside
Showed us The Way and The Truth
We roll into Church
Open the Word
And forget that
We re called to include
Now it s long overdue
But I can t dilute what
We ve seemed to put on the shelf
I can t speak for us all
But I gotta believe
I m speaking for more than myself
When I say

I m sorry, I m sorry
I m sorry, so sorry
I m sorry, I m sorry
I m sorry, so sorry

We say that we re one
But we re broken up
By anything that can divide
Our color of skin
The clothes we re in
That valley is deep and wide

We overlook the broken
The homeless and discard the poor
While we celebrate
The rich and the beautiful
With a wide-open door

I m sorry we re nothing like You
You chose to bare a cross
We chose to give You parts of us
And rarely the parts that cost
Now it s long overdue
But I can t dilute what
We ve seemed to put on the shelf
I can t speak for us all
But I gotta believe
I m speaking for more than myself
When I say

I m sorry, I m sorry
I m sorry, so sorry
I m sorry, I m sorry
I m sorry, so sorry

Wake us up, wake us up
Wake us up, Lord
Wake us up, wake us up
Wake us up

Wake us up, wake us up
Wake us up, Lord
Wake us up, wake us up
Wake us up

I m sorry, I m sorry
I m sorry, so sorry
I m sorry, I m sorry
I m sorry, so sorry

Wake us up, wake us up
Wake us up, wake us up
Wake us up, wake us up, Lord

Wake us up, wake us up
Wake us up, wake us up
Wake us up, wake us up, Lord

Blessed are the poor in spirit
For theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven
Blessed are they that mourn
For they shall be comforted
Blessed are the meek
For they shall inherit the earth
Blessed are they which
Hunger and thirst after righteousness
For they shall be filled
Blessed are the merciful
For they shall obtain mercy
Blessed are the pure in heart
For they shall see God
Blessed are the peace makers
For they shall be
Called the Children of God

Blessed are they which
Are persecuted for righteousness sake
For theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven
Blessed are ye
When men shall revile you
And persecute you and shall
Say all manner of evil
Against you falsely
For My sake
