King of My Soul

As I usually do on Saturday, here are the lyrics to one of my songs. One day as I was listening to a Randy Travis CD and he sang his rendition of the Roger Miller classic, “King of the Road,” these lyrics started to come from my head. I don’t think I’ve ever tried to play it so the lyrics might not quite fit with the tune. If they don’t, my apologies. It isn’t the first time and I’m sure it won’t be the last. I love writing these things but it isn’t always easy to get the lyrics to fit the tune.

Sunday morning, time to sleep in, Spent last night out with my men,
Just jokes and havin’ some fun, Sunday mornin’ I feel like a bum.
I am, too tired for church you see, plus the game is important to me.
I don’t live for God you see, but I’m King of my soul.

Next week I promise I’ll show, I promised her that, long ago.
The wife, she’s heard all my lies, my tales, to her just no longer fly.
She says I better get my life straight, cause later on it will be too late.
My life seems to be falling apart but I’m, King of my soul.

Long ago God freed us with grace
Thought I was good, my mind drifted in space.
But now I know my excuses are lame,
Walkin’ with God now life won bet the same.

I no longer lie to my wife, Jesus gave me a whole new life.
I’ve faith, I’ve hope, I’ve peace,
            I’ve got love and grace I know won’t cease.
He promises each day I’m free, keeps me from being old me.
I’m a man of grace upon grace, and He’s King of my Soul.

I’m apt to stumble and fall, but God, throws it out and forgives it all.
My family sees a new me, God’s buried my sins down deep in the sea.
There’s joy in living God’s way, sin’s price is too much to pay,
I’m a man of grace upon grace, and He’s King of my Soul.

Long ago God freed us with grace
Thought I was good, my mind drifted in space.
But now I know my excuses are lame,
Walkin’ with God now life won bet the same.

I no longer lie to my wife, Jesus gave me a whole new life.
I’ve faith, I’ve hope, I’ve peace
I’ve got love and grace I know won’t cease.
He promises each day I’m free, keeps me from being old me.

I’m a man of grace upon grace, and He’s King of my Soul.
I’m a man of grace, upon grace, He’s King of my Soul.

I pray your evening is blessed. May you also have a wonderful Lord’s day tomorrow.

Seeking the Genuine,
Keith
