Lyrics

God, I’m on my knees again
God, I’m begging please again
I need You
Oh, I need You

Walking down this desert road
Water for my thirsty soul
I need You
Oh, I need You

Your forgiveness
Is like sweet, sweet honey
On my lips
Like the sound of a symphony
To my ears
Like holy water on my skin (hey)

Dead man walking, slave to sin
I wanna know about being born again
I need You
Oh, God, I need You

So, take me to the riverside
Take me under, baptize
I need You
Oh, God, I need You

Your forgiveness
Is like sweet, sweet honey
On my lips
Like the sound of a symphony
To my ears
Like holy water on my skin
On my skin

I don’t wanna abuse Your grace
God, I need it every day
It’s the only thing that ever really
Makes me wanna change
I don’t wanna abuse Your grace
God, I need it every day
It’s the only thing that ever really
Makes me wanna change
I don’t wanna abuse Your grace
God, I need it every day
It’s the only thing that ever really
Makes me wanna change, oh
I don’t wanna abuse Your grace
God, I need it every day
It’s the only thing that ever really
Makes me wanna change

Your forgiveness
Is like sweet, sweet honey
On my lips
Like the sound of a symphony
To my ears
It’s like holy water

Your forgiveness
Oh, is like sweet, sweet honey
On my lips
Like the sound of a symphony
To my ears
Oh, it’s like holy water on my skin
Yeah, it’s like holy water on my skin
Oh, it’s like holy water

About This Song

“The whole heart of the song is about the power of forgiveness and what it really means to be forgiven by God. I’ve actually been reading Romans the past few days and just have been in awe of the way that Paul talks so openly about his own sin. He has such a reverence for God and talks about should we then abuse grace since grace is plentiful? By no means. The bridge to the song says, ‘I don’t want to abuse Your grace. God, I need it every day. It’s the only thing that ever really makes me want to change.’ To me it just depicts that hey I want to be changed by the spirit of God.” – Ed Cash (We The Kingdom)
