"IN MY ARMS" ("OH GOD I THANK THEE")

Verse 1
When I first fell in love with you,
I fell in love with a girl
So beautiful and innocent,
A priceless pearl, oh you, my girl.
And now, as we grow so close,
I think that you might like to know
That I cherish all the love
That you have ever shown.
And when I see you, baby, …

Chorus
I wanna hold you in my arms once again,
Love you through the night,
Tonight and forever.
Oh, baby, you and I were meant to be.
Oh God, I thank Thee.

Verse 2
As I fall deeper in love with you,
I realize you're no longer a girl,
But you're a woman
With a love that's overwhelming me.
I guess it's destiny.
Yet we must remember that
Our love is Heaven's gift;
It is the way our loving Father
Wants to show His love.
And when I see you, baby, …

Chorus
I wanna hold you in my arms once again,
[And love you tenderly, baby,]
Love you through the night,
Tonight and forever.
Oh, baby, you and I were meant to be,
[To be in love eternally.]
Oh God, I thank Thee.

Chorus
I wanna hold you in my arms once again,
[And love you tenderly, baby,]
Love you through the night,
Tonight and forever.
Oh, baby, you and I were meant to be,
[To be in love eternally.]
Oh God, I thank Thee.

Repeat Chorus
