Better Man

Words and Music by Gene Crout

flagbar


Where do I begin?
Iím still lost in my sin
No matter what I do
I still fall short of You

Id like think that I could go
beyond where I am
But each time I try
I find myself back where I started


Iíve heard it said
Its easier to die for You than live
I pray that in the end
Its the fighting of the battle
not the triumph

He was a better man than I
He was a better man than I
Id like to think that I would die
For such a better man than I


How do I stay in the Spirit
As long as my flesh lives?
Nuno you said it best
"My miracles run weak"

Release me from my bonds
I cant take it any more
Cant you see?
My flesh, I abhor


Iíve heard it said
Its easier to die for You than live
I pray that in the end
Its the fighting of the battle
not the triumph

He was a better man than I
He was a better man than I
No worse than me you canít deny
You are a better man than I


Though I battle my flesh I wont give it up!
No, I will fight till the end!
I know that the dying is worth the living
I give You all that I am

Lord give me the strength to
Pick up my cross yet again
Turn your sword on me Lord,
I lay down for You again


I know that its true
Its easier to die for You than live
But I pray that in the end
Its the fighting of the battle!

You are a better man than I
You are a better man than I
The Son sent, for me, to die
Jesus, You are a better man than I

Tears of sorrow I cry
For the Son sent down, for me He died!
I will fight all the days of my life
You are a better man than I
