It could've been me (in a wheel chair with no feet)
Could've been me
Trying to get across the streets
It could've been me
Living in the streets 'yall
It could've been me with no food on my table to eat

But you know what (I thank God)
'Cause it could've been me (It could've been me)
Oh, I thank the Lord (I thank the Lord)
For saving me (For saving me)
Oh, I thank the Lord yes, yes (I thank God)
'Cause it could've been me (It could've been me)
I really do, yes I do (I thank the Lord)
'Cause it could've been me (It could've been me)

It could've been me
Locked up in jail 'yall
It could've been me
With no one to go my bail
It could've been me
I know it could've
Strung out on crack cocaine 'yall
It could as well been me
Shooting heroine in my vaines

And I stopped by to let you know(I thank God)
'Cause it could've been me (It could've been me)
Oh, I thank the Lord (I thank the Lord)
For saving me (For saving me)
I wish I had a witness
Oh, I thank the Lord yes, yes (I thank God)
'Cause it could've been me (It could've been me)
Every time I go down on my knees(I thank the Lord)
I have to say thank you
'Cause it could've been me (it could've been me)

It could've been me
On my sick bed 'yall
It could've been me
When the doctor shook his head
It could've been me
Sleeping in my grave
But Jesus stepped right in 'yall
And He made o death behave

And I come to let you know (I thank God)
'Cause it could've been me (It could've been me)
Oh, I thank the Lord (I thank the Lord)
For saving me (For saving me)
Oh, I thank the Lord yes, yes (I thank God)
'Cause it could've been me (It could've been me)
Every time I go down on my knees(I thank the Lord)
I have to tell somebody
It could've been me (It could've been me)

Sometimes I go in my room
And fold my arms
Here's what I say (Thank you Jesus)
Lord I thank you right now (It could've been me)
Have anybody ever took the time (Thank you Jesus)
To say Lord I thank you (It could've been me)
'Cause you been good to me (Thank you Jesus)
Lord you been so good to me (It could've been me)
When I don't have no money
in my pocket
I don't let it bother me (Thank you Jesus)
'Cause the Lord said He'll work
it out for me (It could've been me)
I know He will (Thank you Jesus)
Has anybody been lonely (It could've been me)
The Lord said He'll be a
company keeper (Thank you Jesus)
For you in the lonely room (It could've been me)
