I Am But A Pilgrim

Dear Lord, I try to do my best
but I fall short a lot of the time.
Listen to my heart beat in my chest
it beats from Your love not mine.

I am just another fickle human being
I have too many things to do in a day.
And I know that You are all seeing
then I try and change my silly way.

Dear Lord, please don't give up on me
I will do much better, I think that I can.
I won't forget all of the Glory in Thee!
I am but a pilgrim, that is all that I am.

I would rather escape this proving ground
we all have to go through while we're here.
For the only goodness ever found is in You
and that is something for us that is so dear.

Dear Lord, remember I try to do what's right
but I am not always successful when I do.
Help me Lord--give to me all of Thy might
then my pilgrimage will end in only You!
