If You would not have been there for me

what would have happened?

If You would not have been there for me

how could I have moved on?

If You would not have been there for me

the nights would have seemed longer

If You would not have been there for me

the path would have seemed harder

 

If You would not have been there for me

where would I have found courage?

If You would not have been there for me

where would I have found hope?

If You would not have been there for me

where would I have found wisdom?

If You would not have been there for me

I would have seen a mountain instead of the slope

 

If You would not have been there for me

where would I have found strength?

If You would not have been there for me

I would not have understood

If You would not have been there for me

I would have fallen even deeper

If You would not have been there for me

my soul would have hungered without any food

 

You gave me the key to unlock the door

You gave me the tools I needed to work

You gave me understanding to know that there’s more

You taught me my anger and anguish to burke

 

You gave me the sight so that I could see

You gave me the wings so that I could fly

You gave me the spirit to stay and not flee

You taught me to smile even when I cry

 

You showed me the exit to the hideous maze

You gave me the sense so I could agree

You gave me the speed to run in the race

You gave me the power to dream and to be

 

You showed me to love regardless of others

You showed me to sail in the hardest storm

You showed me to care for all of my brothers

You showed me that substance is more than just form

 

You taught me to wait patiently in darkness

You taught me to swim instead of just sinking

You taught me to rise above circumstances

You taught me to learn and never stop thinking

 

I’m thankful forever because You are there

I’ll proclaim Your name all of my life’s days

You were there for me when I starved and feared

My heart sings rejoicing just wanting to praise
