I’m Not The Man I Used To Be

Print-Friendly Lyrics

In a letter from Apostle Paul
He confessed to one and all
That the spirit’s strong
But the flesh is awfully weak
Things I should do, I don’t
Things I say I will, I won’t
But my God’s begun a work in me
That’ll one day be complete

And I know I’m not the man that I ought to be
Many times I fall short of what You want of me
And I’m surely not the man I really want to be
But thank God, I’m not the man I used to be

Just like Paul of old
I keep pressing toward the goal
Forgetting all the things that lay behind
But instead I’ll look ahead
And I’ll go where I’m lead
Toward the mark for the prize
That will be mine

And I know I’m not the man that I ought to be
Many times I fall short of what You want of me
And I’m surely not the man I really want to be
But thank God, I’m not the man
Singing praises to the Lamb
Thank God, I’m not the man I used to be
