"Even Though" - Larry Sheats

"Even Though" - Larry Sheats

Even though I deserve death 
You give me life 
Even though You give me peace 
I continue to fight 
Even though You hold my hand 
At times I’m still afraid 
Even though I know You hear me 
Sometimes I do not pray 
Even though the sun may shine 
I can only see the rain 
Even though You have forgiven me 
I can still feel the shame 
Even though You’re in my heart 
I can still feel the hate 
Even though You’re always on time 
I feel like You are late 
Even though I know I’m weak 
You’re strength You freely give 
Even though I want to die 
Your love makes me want to live 
Even though I hurt so much 
You comfort all the pain 
Even though all I feel is loss 
You tell me there is gain 
Even though all I see 
Is destruction from the storm 
You tell me to have faith in You 
And keep me safe from harm 
Even though I feel alone 
You are always by my side 
Even though the world is against it 
Your name I won’t deny 
Even though I don’t deserve 
Your love, mercy or grace 
You choose to bless me anyway 
And help me in this race 
So Lord I’m going to tell You 
Something You all ready know 
You love me not for what I’ve done 
But in spite of ‘even though’
