Three Rusty nails

Precious Lord Jesus, please hear my prayer

my heart is so burdened, it seems no one cares

when I'm brought to my knee's by the weight of sins debt

forsaken by others, your my only friend left

 

You said you'd never leave me, so please hear my plea

I'm claiming a promise made when you set me free

I just want to tell you, that I know I've failed

but I still have the victory, because of three rusty nails

 

Precious Lord Jesus, I love you so

thank you for washing me, in your crimson flow

I came as a poor man, not owning a thing

when I left the cross, I left a child of the king

 

Thank you dear Lord,  for listening to me

hearing the prayer of a sinner who's so unworthy

I just want to tell you, when I know I've failed

I'm still walking in victory, because of three rusty nails
