Michael Card — I Have Decided lyrics

Michael Card
Chorus
I have decided
I'm going to live like a believer
Turn my back on the deceiver
I'm going to live what I believe
I have decided
Being good is just a fable
I just can't cause I'm not able
Going to leave it to the Lord
There's a wealth of things that I professed
And said that I believed
But deep inside I never changed
I guess I've been deceived
And a voice inside kept telling me
That I changed by and by
But the Spirit made it clear to me
That kind of life's a lie
Chorus
So forget the game of being good
And your self-righteous pain
Cause the only good inside your heart
Is the good that Jesus brings
When the world begins to see you change
Don't expect them to applaud
Just keep your eyes on Him and tell yourself
I've become the work of God
Repeat Chorus
