lyrics

“Good Samaritan”
by Mike McBride
Copyright 2013, SRu 1-133-313

Bruised and battered, fried and tattered, always living in defeat
Always someone, always hurting, somehow the edges just don't meet
But I don't stop to help in any way
Cause I don't have the time to save the day

Oh, what did I do?
When I could have done something?
Well, what if I did nothing?
What did I do?

Wait a minute… What about….
When I'm standing at the Pearly Gates
And I meet St. Pete and he hesitates,
He says, "What did you do?
To get your chance to stand before the King of the Jews?"

“What did you do?
When you could have done something?
You could have been a Good Samaritan
But instead you just did nothing”
What did I do?
I had a chance to do something
But I did a lot of nothing
Uh-oh
Music/Lead/Solo

Be a Good Samaritan, go ahead and take a chance
See like a Samaritan in any circumstance (3x)
You really ought to try and be a Good Samaritan, go head and take a chance
You really ought to try and see like a Samaritan, a Good Samaritan of love

So, I stand before you Jesus, naked and true
And I'm begging for forgiveness, for what I did not do!
What did I do?
When I could have done something?
Well, what if I did nothing?
I could’ve been a Good Samaritan
What did I do?
I had a chance to do something
But I did a lot of nothing
What did I do?

Can't eat, can't sleep , can't earn my keep
Can't stand alone up on my feet
And I'm feeling beat. Is this defeat?
Can I get a second chance
In any certain circumstance?
What did I do?
