    First let me say Father you've been good to me
    and I wanna say thank you for letting me be

    The sinner that I am
    I know things between us aint always been glam

    But i have to say thank you Father for giving me the strength
    and thank you for over and over giving me the chance to repent

    Today Father I hope your smiling on me
    Cause today out of all the days I feel free

    The one man who I thought I could lean on
    The one whom I thought our love was strong
    Now think Im in the wrong

    I know you told me Father to help one anotha
    and Father I've helped him to get further

    I lied, stole, and killed
    My pride, dignity, and my will

    Just so that he can be happy
    I even went against my own pappy

    When waters begin to ruffle he's never around
    Always leaving me to struggle while he's above ground

    Lord I cried and cried because you told me to love
    And Father I thought his love came from above

    I said Father I had enough
    Of this unappreciative Negro stuff

    He slapped me disappointed me
    He continue to rape me

    Of my kind heartedness
    Played me for my weakness

    But I said Devil get behind me you aint getting this no more
    and Father im on my knees saying Help me to even the score

    and then I heard
    O happy Days/ O happy Days when Jesus washed/ when Jesus washed / he washed my sins away

    I begin to rejoice because I no longer felt the pressure
    No matter what no man put before me his drama wont be able to measure

    Because I no longer wallow in his deception
    You and only you took me in with warm reception

    I ask for strength you gave it
    I ask for the power you gave it
    I ask for respect you gave it
    I ask for the will you gave it

    And you help me your undeserving child to get off her feet
    Oh Father I feel like praising ya cause you help me to defeat

    To overcome his wicked ways
    and thats why I continue to pray

    Because one night I just couldnt sleep and I felt Maybe God was trying to tell me something
    Cause my Heart to go jumping
    Cause I heard this

    If I were you I say yes Speak Lord, Speak to me / I love you Lord/ Cause you cant sleep at night/and you sho'll wonder why/ Maybe God is trying to tell you something

    And I listen Lord to your words
    and the tears begin to fall from hearing the Proverbs

    and you gave me the strength to tell him no
    Im tired of being the devil little Ho
    and you told me he's gots to go

    and I want to say Oh what a Happy Day/Cause My God was trying to tell me something!!!!!!!!!!!!
