CHORUS

 

 

 

WHEN I DIDNÕT HAVE A CLUE WHAT TO DO, YOU DID

 

WHEN I DIDNÕT KNOW WHY YOU BROUGHT ME THROUGH, YOU DID

 

THE PURPOSE FOR MY LIFE, I NEVER KNEW BUT YOU DID

 

BUT NOW I KNOW, YOU ALWAYS KNEW WHAT WAS BEST FOR ME

 

WHY WERE THESE PEOPLE IN MY LIFE, I DONÕT KNOW BUT YOU DID

 

WHY DID I GO THROUGH CERTAIN STRIFE, I DONÕT KNOW BUT YOU DID

 

HOW YOU CHOSE HER AS MY WIFE, I DONÕT KNOW BUT YOU DID

 

BUT ALL THIS HAD TO BE FULFILLED FOR MY DESTINY

 

 

 

 

 

SINGING (CHORUS)

 

 

 

YOU KNEW

 

YOU KNEW

 

YOU KNEW THE BEST FOR ME

 

YOU KNEW

 

YOU KNEW

 

YOU KNEW MY DESTINY

 

 

 

 

VERSE 1

 

 

 

LOOKING BACK ON MY LIFE REFLECTS A CHILD

 

WHO NOW CAN SAY IÕM PROUD FOR THE FACT IÕM WISER NOW

 

IÕVE BEEN THROUGH MANY JOURNEYS, ADVENTURES, AND STEPPING STONES

 

IÕVE NEVER KNOWN IT BE EASY, BELIEVE ME, FROM LESSONS SHOWN

 

BUT IT NEVER CROSSED MY MIND, HOW OFTEN IÕM

 

QUESTIONING WHY, BUT ALL THE ANSWERS WERE LOST THROUGH TIME

 

I NEVER THOUGHT ABOUT IT MUCH, AND I LOST TOUCH

 

WITH THE IDEA OF NOT USING CIRCUMSTANCE AS MY CRUTCH

 

FOR EVERY SEASON, THEREÕS A REASON

 

WHEN EVEN THE LESSON LEARNED I COULDNÕT DISCERN, I BEGAN BELIEVING

 

THAT EVERYTHING THATÕS TAKEN PLACE IN MY LIFE

 

WHETHER BAD OR NICE, GLAD OR STRIFE, WAS A SACRIFICE

 

NOT FOR STRESSING ME, BUT EVERY TEST TO ME

 

WAS FOR THE BEST IN ME, TO REACH MY DESTINY

 

AND THOUGH IT TOOK ME A WHILE TO FIGURE IT OUT

 

BUT NOW, WHEN TESTS COME MY WAY I SHOUT, THERE ISNÕT A DOUBT

 

 

 

 

CHORUS

 

 

 

 

 

VERSE 2

 

 

 

I USED TO ASK GOD WHY CERTAIN CARDS WERE DEALT

 

EVEN IN SITUATIONS WHEN IN MY HEART I FELT

 

THAT THE PATH I WAS TAKING WAS THE CHOICE TO BE MAKING

 

BUT NEVERTHELESS, THROUGH TIME I WOULD LEARN I WAS MISTAKEN

 

FOR SOMETHING ELSE WOULD GUIDE ME AND DENIED ME

 

TO GIVE ROOT TO THE POOR DECISION MAKER INSIDE ME

 

AND NOT TO MENTION, A CHILDHOOD OF RELIGION

 

THAT WOULD ALWAYS BRING CONVICTION WITH EVERY BAD DECISION

 

THIS FEELING PLAYED A BIG PART IN MY YOUNGER YEARS

 

AND I CAN REMEMBER HOW IT WOULD BRING ME TO TEARS

 

SOME OF THE FRIENDS IN MY LIFE COULDNÕT STOP ADDICTIONS

 

OTHERS THUGGED OUT, GOT LOCKED UP, OR JUST HAD AFFLICTIONS

 

WHY WAS I DIFFERENT, WHAT DID GOD SEE IN ME

 

THAT HE MADE SURE THAT I KNEW HE BELIEVED IN ME

 

ALTHOUGH I COULDNÕT, I KNOW GOD SAW THE BEST IN ME

 

NOW HEÕS NEXT TO ME, HELPING ME WITH MY DESTINY

 

 

 

 

CHORUS

 

 

 

 

 

VERSE 3

 

 

 

IÕVE ENDURED FRUSTRATIONS AS WELL AS STAGNATIONS

 

WHILE IN THE PROCESS YOU CONTINUE TO TEACH ME PATIENCE

 

FOR THEREÕS A MIGHTY WORK THAT YOU INSTILLED IN ME

 

AS WELL AS A GIFT TO WIN SOULS, YOU HAVE FILLED IN ME

 

YOU SAW MY POTENTIAL FROM THE INTRO

 

THE PURPOSE FOR MY LIFE WAS NEVER COINCIDENTAL

 

YOU KNEW FROM THE BEGINNING WHAT I WAS CAPABLE OF

 

TAKING YOUR LOVE AND GIVING IT TO ME, THEREÕS NO LOVE GREATER ABOVE

 

YOU GAVE ME BLESSINGS SPECIFIC FOR JUST MY LIFE

 

 BEAUTIFUL CHILDREN MADE PERFECT FROM JUST MY WIFE

 

I WOULDNÕT HAVE IT NO OTHER WAY, I WANNA STAY

 

TUNED AND CONSUMED TO YOUR PERFECT WILL ANOTHER DAY

 

EVERYTHING I SAW WORTHLESS SOON HAD A PURPOSE

 

FROM THE DAYS I FELT MY BEST TO MY BROTHERÕS DEATH

 

BUT NEVERTHELESS, YOUÕVE PROVEN TIME AGAIN THAT YOUÕRE FAITHFUL

 

AND IÕM GRATEFUL FOR THE PURPOSE OF MY LIFE, IÕM THANKFUL

 

 

 

CHORUS
