I call upon you lord to help me here I pray I pray that you inspire me and guide what I might say For words don’t seem to be enough for what now lies in store Events of life that seem to come and shake you to your core
I call upon you lord right now as witnesses listen in I confess to you my god right now no man is without sin As I profess my grief today as these words are said out loud No one here is without sin no one in this crowd
The life we live the life we chose it’s our choice to make Free will was given to each of us to make our own mistakes And I made them and I suffered all alone it’s true Am I alone in my suffering or have you suffered too
Life is fleeting our souls bleeding what are we to do I have no answers only questions and now I’m asking you What’s your sin is it addiction of money drugs or fame Or is it societal standing protecting your good name
I’ll confess I am guilty of all these things it’s true I will profess that I’ll do better I pray that you will too Peer deep inside your heart today the truth reveals within There’s only been I man on earth that was free of sin

I cannot mend my broken heart Learning I have lost my friend Once my time has come and gone Next time we take and meet again A silent prayer for you I send
Hoping now that you can finally rest Even though my heart still hurts Losing you will never stop My love for you and your time on earth I miss you I love you I will never forget you
While your time on earth was short I feel your presence with us today Calming us as we deal with sorrow Keeping us from going insane Still our hearts it beats tomorrow Till our time has come and gone Remember that our time is borrowed Our time on earth is not to long May you be at peace and never forgotten
