about

Recorded in 2010 for a song writing contest. I didn't win, but I still love this song. It's inspired by a book written by an anonymous Russian pilgrim from the 19th century.

lyrics

As a pilgrim in this world
I admit I've made mistakes
And to burn the bridge to You, Lord
One mistake is all it takes

Chorus:
Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me
Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me

A lot of bad things I have done
A lot of good things I have not
I know forgiveness through God's Son
Is the only chance I've got

Chorus

Your life was pure perfection
Your death was pure disgrace
But through that death and resurrection
I'm forgiven by Your grace

Chorus
