how do I count the ways
you have been with me each day.
Stepping to the side when I was wrong
guiding me when I was young and strong.
The follies of my sin that did appear before your eyes
since it came into "The Garden of Eden's," paradise.
I came to know your love and grace
since there was an empty space,
a longing for you to take your place.
I didn't know what I was searching for till
the message of a savior's death on the cross did fill
this lonely heart of mine from the start.
A savior's love so divine,
he didn't make us all #nine's.
There has always been since creation of time
someone or something that makes us tick, whether
we choose to acknowledge his power over a bird's feather
or the idiosyncrasies of the weather.
Can you give me a why
as you look up to his name on high
if you refuse to accept his love?
He paid the debt of sin declared from above
so you and I could be set free apart from the start.
