This seems to be a very old church song sung by different artists and with different lyrics and I haven't been able to track down who wrote it. The band 'Group 1 Crew' with Manuel, Pablo and Blanca brought it to the forefront of hip hop/rap. I don't really care for hip hop or rap, but I have to say they did it with style and I loved listening to it. Here are the lyrics: Group 1 Crew - Forgive Me lyrics (Chorus:)

Lord, though I walk through the Valley of Shadow of Death

I'm not scared, because You're holding my breath,

I only fear that I don't have enough time left,

To tell the world that there's no time left.

(Spoken:)

Father, I'm going through some heavy things.

Seems like this world ain't getting any better.

The more we try to get closer to You,

The farther we run from Your throne.

(Rap:)

I spend so many nights wondering when will it end?

When will the day come, when happiness begins?

I'm running the race, but it seems so hard to win.

I'm sick of mourning, my stomach throwing up in the morning.

I'm calling for help and watching it melt away.

My heart has been put on display, and put away,

And many ways, many times I told myself it was okay.

And anger was the price that was paid!

While these fading dreams just scream to bring them Home

The burden was too heavy and I kept running from the throne.

I can't take it any longer!

I can taste my spirit hunger!

God please help me to get Home!

(Chorus:)

Lord, though I walk through the Valley of Shadow of Death

I'm not scared, 'cause You're holding my breath,

I only fear that I don't have enough time left,

To tell the world that there's no time left.

Lord, please!

(Rap:)

I've come to terms that I'm burning both sides of the rope

And I'm hoping that this self control will kick in before I'm choking

Off this sin that's destroying every fiber I got.

I need the Lord in every way, I'll never make it.

I'm not

Going back to the way I was before Christ in my life!

I couldn't do it, I'd lose it, there's no point to the fight!

And I'm writing this song for the people who don't belong

I pray away the pain you feel from all the things that went wrong.

Inside the life filled with anger and disappointment

'cause daddy treated you weaker than all the other kids.

And it's annoying, and I feel for'em!

All of you who wanna give up, you feel stuck!

I feel the same way, Lord help us stay up!

You couldn't pay me to abandon the idea of true Hope!

That I could make it through this life to a place where there's no

Crying, I'm dying to find You with open arms when I go

Knowing You love me, You're waiting to give rest to my soul.

Oh!

(Chorus:)

Lord, though I walk through the Valley of Shadow of Death

I'm not scared, 'cause You're holding my breath,

I only fear that I don't have enough time left,

To tell the world that there's no time left.

Lord, please!

(Sing:)

Lord, I don't know what I'm struggling for.

There's got to be more, than this life I know.

But still I'm here fighting to never give up.

I find strength in Your love.

And You will see me through!

(Chorus:)to fade out

Lord, though I walk through the Valley of Shadow of Death

I'm not scared, 'cause You're holding my breath,

I only fear that I don't have enough time left,

To tell the world that there's no time left.

Lord, please!
