There were nights where I was sure
I wouldn't see the morning sun
And there were days that seemed so dark
I couldn't wait for night to come

I couldn't stand to think about how
My life used to be
And how without a single warning
It all slipped away from me

And like a fool I thought that I could fight
The shadows on my own
To the dark I was no stranger
But this was stronger than I'd known

And by the time I knew that I was in too deep
I'd gone too far
And the light that used to guide me
Had faded from my heart

And I found myself in places I thought I'd never go
Surrounded by strangers I was so far from home
And I don't know how you found me
All I know is I owe you everything to you
Yes I do

[Chorus]
And I thank you for my heart
I thank you for my life
And I thank god for grace and mercy
And that you became my wife
I'm seeing for the first time
The stars, the sun and moon
But they've got nothing on the power
Of this love I have for you

And I thank you, I thank you

Now people say they'll stand beside you
They swear they never leave
But when the rain started falling
You know it only fell on me

and it was hard to keep believing in myself
When all I felt was so much pain
And guilt and shame
I couldn't even as for help

I don't know if I believe in other lives
But when you came
There was something so familar
About the way you said my name

And the whole world started turning
And I swear that I'd been born again brand new
And it's all because of you

[Chorus]

And I thank you

And I've seen so many things
That I just can't explain
But the miracle of miracles is how
With your love I was saved

And I thank you for my heart
I thank you for my life
I thank god for grace and mercy
And that you became my wife
And I'm seeing for the first time
The stars, the sun and moon
But they've got nothing on the power
Of all this love I give to you

And I thank you for my heart
I thank you for my life
I thank god for grace and mercy
And that you became my wife
The day I started breathing
Was the day you took my hand
And 'till the day I die
Baby, I'll forever be your man
And I thank you, I thank you
Oh, yes I do
Oh, don't you know, that I thank you
Oh
