I turn back the hands of time
To see what I've left behind
All the memories within my heart
And deep within my mind
I see all the hardships I've endured
And I'm rest assured
That you'll be there beside me
Like you've always been
Time and again
And with all that's said and done
you've always been the one
To hold me on those rainy days
When I couldn't see the sun
And when all the clouds have disappeared
And my skies are clear
I feel your love shining down on me
Without your love
Where would I be'

You were the one
Who wiped the tears from (Where would I be')
My eyes
It was your love that gave me life
Through my darkest times
You were the one
What you've given me
I could never repay
All I can give to you
Is my love and embrace
Cause I live to see the smile
Upon your face
Day, by day
Day by day
Day by day
I'm gonna finish this race
Mmm, yes I will'

I've promised to go on
Until my race is won
And the knowledge
You have given me
I'll give to those
I love
And I've learned
That is I do succeed
Then I shall receive
The promise of
A brighter day
You give me hope
You give me faith

You were the one
Who wiped the tears from (That's what you've done)
My eyes
It was your love that gave me life
Through my darkest times (You gave me hope and gave life)
You were the one (You were the one)
What you've done me
I could never repay
So I live my life
According to your way (Repay all the things you've done for me oh Lord)
Cause I live to see that smile
Upon your face
Day, by day

Ooo, your love
It always pulled me through (Oh yeah)
And when I felt
All hope was gone
There was always you (Yeah)
Until my dying day in my heart
You will always be
And I'm so thankful for
The love you've given me
Now I see (Yeah)

You were the one
Who wiped the tears from my (You wiped the tears from my eyes) eyes
It was your love that gave me life
Through my darkest (You gave me life, yes you gave me life) times
You were the one
What you've given me
I could never repay
I won't fail you
This I promise you today
Cause I'd die if saw tears
Come down your face (Oh Lord)
So I live in you
I will live in your name
The rest of
My days
don't you cry no more

Oh no, no
Ooo'
