You knew me from the very beginning,

You accepted me for what I was,

You saw beneath the layers of my former life

Then You chose to peel them away, ‘coz of Your great love


You were patient to train me to be strong and wise,

You were full of compassion and understanding

But never compromising what was good and right

Always teaching me, never letting me out of Your sight


I won’t give up, for I’ll remember You

Even when the world seems to go against me, I’ll remember You

Though it seems that there’s nowhere and no one else to turn to,

I’ll remember You

When everyone expects a frown, they’ll see a smile

‘Cause I’ll remember You


Now there’s no turning back from the life You showed me

A life with meaning and fulfillment

To truly know what it means to love

To care for something greater than myself


You were always there for me to call on

You promised me You would be there during times of need

So I didn’t become sad when You took a step back

‘Cause You just wanted to see if I’d still remember You
