Father Please

By Aaron R. Tims

Father please hear my prayer
Father please hear my prayer

A tax collector
And a priest Pharisee
You see one guy standing up and the other guy fallen down on his knees
The priest standing up
Looks to the man on his knees
As a frivolous sinner doomed to never ending calamity
To mock what he heard, he strained to receive
But through the tears, and beating, and the guilt it made the only words
Intelligible
SAVE ME!!!

Father please answer me
And save me from the flames
I'm on my knees and in my sin
But I'm not afraid to change
Father please answer me
And change me of my ways
Father please, Father please
Don't let me leave the same

A decade ago
There was a change
A transformation to a saint from a lofty Pharisee
I thought, “I must be saved
“Cause I practically live at church giving it all my energy”
But the rev. started up, with the burdens of Hell
And said that not the church, but Jesus Christ was the only one who could save me
Oh how could I think differently?

Father please answer me
And save me from the flames
I'm on my knees and in my sin
But I'm not afraid to change
Father please answer me
And change me of my ways
Father please, Father please
Don't let me leave the same

Father please answer me
And save me from the flames
I'm on my knees and in my sin
But I'm not afraid to change
Father please answer me
And change me of my ways
Father please, Father please
Don't let me leave the same
