I'm a ship lost at sea/ Blown by the wind aimlessly/
By the racing waves and tides/
I'm worn and wry/
No shore in sight/
No place to hide/
I'm a house broken down/
My cracks are deep from roof to ground/
Wishing for a chance to fix my messy leaks/
I'm hurting much/ Yet I'm getting numb/

CHORUS: I need Jesus, I need Jesus/
I need Jesus, oh Jesus/

I'm a forgotten truck stuck in a rut/
None alive but stains and dust/
Stiffled by these grimes and stubborn rust/
On busted wheels/ I'm crippled still/
I'm a paper plane in a hurricane/
I flew too high in my last flight out/
In the haste came down crashing in disdain/
And ended up melting in the rain/
All this time my world relied on foolish pride and alibis/
All just now my reveries subside/
All these fragments of my shattered heart/
Is all that's left I'm pricked picking up/
Who can make me well/ Who can make me well/
In those days gone by/
Even then and now
