[Katie Scullin Intro]
Take me to Your garden, show me the light
Wash me in the water, Lord take me home
Oh I know that I can’t do this alone

[Verse 1 – Rip]
Aye, who really is Rip? And why is he making This Jesus so central?
That kid is too broken I’ve seen what he’s into.
You’ve seen what I’m into? Have you felt what I been through? No!
No skeletons in my closet, I’m cleanin’ em out it.
Including the basement the cellar and attic
Alcohol and crack is just some of our habits, my family of addicts
Been to the bottom and feasted with demons
Like what is the reason, boy, what are you thinkin!?
At church praisin God, lookin for meanin’
Then later I’m tippin some strippers that evening.
Bouts with depression without the discretion
I’m out gettin wreckless so how could I end this?
Can Anyone really redeem all my wrongs,
even though all my wrongs helped me write all these songs?

[Chorus]
Take me to Your garden, show me the light
Wash me in the water, Lord take me home
Oh I know that I can’t do this aloooone yeeaah yeeeah wooohooo
From my knees, beg You please!

[Verse 2]
Yeah, the other day I caught up with PR on the phone
Said I was the only to do it from home.
Ain’t none of our peers ever really do it
Follow their dreams and really pursue it
People been hatin me, people praisin me
I promise on everything, you should not envy me
Way too much pain has went into creatin’ me
Wouldn’t wish any on any my enemies
Look at my face you could see what I been through
Examine my soul through my eyes as the window
Can’t tell if it broke when my brother was murdered
2004 my girl did the unheard of [abortion]
Never supported this afflcition
Plus sexual addiction kept me mentally in prison
Kept me from lovin’, I’m supposed to be Christian
Until He reminds me that we are forgiven.

[Chorus 2]
Take me to Your garden, show me the light
Wash me in the water, Lord take me home
Take me to Your garden, show me the light
Wash me in the water, Lord take me home oh I know that I can’t do this alone!
La La La La La La La La
La La La La La La La La
La La La La La La La La
La La La La La La La La

[Bridge]
Every day on my knees I pray, Praise The Lord that He’s here to stay
Praise Him more cuz my life has changed, He’ll renew anything
Every story has two sides, heads or tails, this is mine
For His glory He has His, the Redeemer heals who believes in Him

[Chorus 3]
Take me to Your garden, show me the light
Wash me in the water, Lord take me home
Take me to Your garden, show me the light
Wash me in the water, Lord take me home oh I know that I can’t do this alone
From me knees…
La La La La La La La La
La La La La La La La La
La La La La La La La La
La La La La La La La La
