Can't you live humble?
Praise King Jesus!
Can't you live humble
To the dying Lamb?

Make me think of my poor soul. [Refrain]

2 Come here, Jesus, come here, please,
See me, Jesus, on my knees. [Refrain]

3 Ev'ry body come and see,
A man's been here from Galilee; [Refrain]

Went away and left me free. [Refrain]
