Darkness was a demon that I came to know,
Locked up in a world without a key.
Taking me to places that I never meant to go,
I'm afraid it's been makin' me
A little bit crazy.
Now I'm the first to tell You that I need to change.
I can see it clearly in my mind.
Cleaning out the dusty rooms that remain,
I can leave those burdens far behind.
A different man.
Openin' up my heart
Knowin' that You'll be there.
Take yesterday from me, and all of my memories,
Never again to bear.
Take this sinner's prayer. Take this sinner's prayer.
Where I've been, I tell You, You don't want to be.
Images I've fought to leave behind.
Through it all there is one thing I can see,
A stronger hand is lifting me on high.
Take me Father.
Take me now,
Hear my cry.
Come and do what You do.
Makin' me new to start again.
