"WHAT YOU GAVE ME"

Verse 1
I was a song without music,
A singer without a voice,
I was a life without living,
A body without a soul,
A candle with no flame, a fire with no warmth,
Oh, until I met You.

Chorus
You gave warmth to my fire,
And a flame to my candle,
And so I could fly above
You gave me wings.
You took away the pain and gave me a new name,
And now to You, forever, I will sing.

Verse 2
You gave me the desire
To live and die for You.
You gave me a new life,
You made my dreams come true.
You gave me love and took me as your own,
Opened Your arms when I turned to run.

Chorus
You gave warmth to my fire,
And a flame to my candle,
And so I could fly above
You gave me wings.
You took away the pain and gave me a new name,
And now to You, forever, I will sing.

Bridge
Oh, there are times when I turn my back on You, Lord,
And I go out on my own,
But You never give up on me,
You wait all night until I'm home.

Chorus
You gave warmth to my fire,
And a flame to my candle,
And so I could fly above
You gave me wings.
You took away the pain and gave me a new name,
And now to You, forever, I will sing.
