Because You Love Me

A popular song by Diane Warren, as a tribute to her father for his encouragement, that I tried to adapt as I prayer.

For all those times you stay by me
For all the truth that you make me see
For all the joy you bring to my life
For all the wrong that you make right
For every dream you make come true
For all the love I found in you
I’ll be forever thankful Lord
You’re the one who held me up
Never let me fall
You’re the one who sees me through it all

You are my strength when I am weak
You are my voice when I can’t speak
You are my eyes when I can’t see
You see the best there is in me
Lift me up when I can’t reach
You give me faith ‘coz you believe
I’m everything I am
Because you love me

You give me wings and make me fly
You touch my hand I could touch the sky
I lost my faith, you gave it back to me
You say no star is out of reach
You stay by me and I stay tall
I have your love I have it all
I’m grateful for each day you give me
Maybe I don’t know that much
But I know this much is true
I am blessed because you love me

You are always there for me
The tender wind that carries me
A light in the dark shining your love into my life
You are my inspiration
Through the lies you are the truth
My world is a better place because of you

I’m everything I am
Because you love me
