My love, I'll never find the words, my love
To tell you how I feel, my love
Mere words, could not, explain
Precious love, you held my life within your hands
Created everything I am
Taught me how to live again
Only you, cared when I needed a friend
Believed in me through thick and thin
This song is for you, filled with gratitude and love... 

God bless you, you make me feel brand new
For God blessed me with you
You make me feel brand new
I sing this song 'cause you... make me feel brand new

My love, whenever I was insecure
You filled me up and made me sure
You gave, my pride, back to me
Precious friend, with you I'll always have a friend
You're someone who I can depend
To walk a path that sometimes bend
Without you, life has no meaning or rhyme
Like notes to a song out of time
How can I repay, you for having faith in me...
