  • Some folks'll do anything for money
    Cheat and lie and steal
    Won't even take the time to go to church on Sunday
    But they got plenty of time to make a deal

    Please forgive me if I ever act like that
    That ain't the way I wanna be
    I pray every night that everything I do
    Before the love of God
    For the love of God is why I try so hard
    I ain't trying to win the praise of man,
    I live for the love of God

    Some people only want to have a good time
    Drinkin' and carryin' on
    They get behind the wheel and the next thing you know,
    Somebody's child is gone

    Please forgive me if I ever act like that
    That ain't the way I wanna be
    I pray every night that everything I do
    Before the love of God
    For the love of God is why I try so hard
    I ain't trying to win the praise of man,
    I live for the love of God

    For the love of God is why I try so hard
    I ain't trying to win the praise of man,
    I live for the love of God
    I ain't trying to win the praise of man,
    I live for the love of God Writer/s: JOSHUA O. TURNER
