LYRICS: TobyMac - I'm Sorry (A Lament)




[Intro]
No, no, no
No, no

[Verse 1]
We started out strong
But somewhere along
We lost our way
Done things in Your name
I'm so ashamed
I don't have the words to say
We've killed and destroyed
Stolen and blamed
All in Your name
You told us to give
Told us to love
But we chose to take
You laid down Your life
Put power aside
Showed us the Way and the Truth
We roll into church
Open the Word
And forget that we're called to include



[Pre-Chorus]
Now, it's long overdue
But I can't dilute
What we seem to havе put on the shelf
I can't speak for us all
But I gotta bеlieve
I'm speaking for more than myself
When I say…

[Chorus]
I'm sorry, I'm sorry
No, no, no
I'm sorry, so sorry
No, no, no
I'm sorry, I'm sorry
No, no, no
I'm sorry, so sorry
No, no, no

[Verse 2]
We say that we're one
But we're broken up
By anything that can divide
Our color o' skin
The clothes we're in
That valley's deep and wide
We overlook the broken
The homeless
And discard the poor
While we celebrate the rich and beautiful
With a wide-open door
I'm sorry we're nothing like You
You chose to bear a Cross
We choose to give You parts of us
And rarely the parts that cost



[Pre-Chorus]
Now, it's long overdue
But I can't dilute
What we seem to have put on the shelf
I can't speak for us all
But I gotta believe
I'm speaking for more than myself
When I say…

[Chorus]
I'm sorry, I'm sorry
No, no, no
I'm sorry, so sorry
No, no, no
I'm sorry, I'm sorry
No, no, no
I'm sorry, so sorry
No, no, no

[Bridge]
Wake us up, wake us up, wake us up, Lord
Wake us up, wake us up, wake us up
Wake us up, wake us up, wake us up, Lord
Wake us up, wake us up, wake us up

[Chorus]
I'm sorry, I'm sorry
No, no, no
I'm sorry, so sorry
No, no, no
I'm sorry, I'm sorry
No, no, no
I'm sorry, so sorry
No, no, no



[Bridge]
Wake us up, wake us up, wake us up
Wake us up, wake us up, wake us up, Lord
Wake us up, wake us up, wake us up
Wake us up, wake us up, wake us up, Lord

[Outro]
Blessed are the poor in spirit
For theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven
Blessed are they that mourn
For they shall be comforted
Blessed are the meek
For they shall inherit the Earth
Blessed are they which hunger and thirst after righteousness
For they shall be filled
Blessed are the merciful
For they shall obtain mercy
Blessed are the pure in heart
For they shall see God
Blessed are the peacemakers
For they shall be called the children of God
Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake
For theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven
Blessed are ye when men shall revile you and persecute you and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely for My sake
