Let me tell you about my life,
In all my strength and all my strife
Waiting for the miracle in-front
Not realising that I can be the blessing that I want
I never knew a love like this,
But he waited for me, like he always did.
He leaves the 99 to bring that one home,
My friends he never leaves us alone.
And I told some people about him
But they said it’s not true,
“Why would he leave everyone for you?’
Nah its not just me I said,
He loves you just the same,
But I know this all sounds a little insane.
So I stopped waiting for the light to come
and I became the light like he would want.
I’m following the steps that he’s put in-front of me,
I’m turning into the person that i was always supposed to be.
My friend what if I told you
that you are so so loved,
It’s not coming from me
It’s coming from up above,
I don’t think I ever knew a love like this could exist,
there never ever gonna be a love like this.
Nothing ever will.
Just let your faith guide you
Just be still.
The seeds you plant today my friend
Is the flower you become the end.
I know you didn’t ask for no advice
Don’t worry I’m not telling you twice,
In good in bad, atrocity,
He’ll come for you, like he came for me.
And I promise you he won’t disappoint,
He chooses the ones that he can anoint.
You wanna know a secret? …
You won’t ever be the same…
I was once blind now I see
I’m born again.
