living life, walking next to God

How it hurts and
How I have cried
How I'm all torn up inside
I don't understand and I don't know why
Feel like I don't deserve to be alive
And the truth is I don't
I should be dead
But the one who made me
Gave his life instead

Said there would be days like this
When I didn't know that I could go on with this
This life that I don't deserve to live
Said that he would be there and give me a kiss
He would hold my hand and keep me close
And although I would feel like giving in
Said that I could stand strong if I would just hold on to him

My devotion to him
His devotion to me
Is unmatched
By anything that the eye can see
He loves me dearly
As his queen and bride
said that he would rule proudly
With me at his side

Why do you love me
Why I cry
He answers
Because you are my queen and bride
Because you are a child inside
Because you are mine and you shine like a star
No matter where you go or how far you are
I know that your heart is bound to mine
And no matter what happens you will triumph every time

My heart is full
Full to the brim
With the love of one
Who is sold out for him
I can do no more than serve my God
I can love with no less
Than a love that is selfless
He gives me grace to go on each day
And says he will help me in every way
