In Marissa’s version, she starts the first verse by expressing how much she needs God.
“Don’t know what I would do if it weren’t for You | but I know I’m not worthy of all You do. | And God knows I’m better off loving You | and I don’t want You to leave because I’d be doomed.”
The chorus desribes how Jesus transforms lives. “Oh Jesus You saved me | Got me on my knees | I’m a sinner at your feet | But Jesus, You saved me.”
