I gave My life for you;
Now, it’s up to you.
Do you understand the love I offer,
The way I long for your sweet friendship?
Do you know how much I’m missing you?
Although you lost your way,
My love you can’t sever.
Don’t you realize I’ll leave you never?
I want you to look into my eyes;
See the love there? It’s yours forever!
Rise up, my precious child;
Come, give Me your hand.
I understand the burdens you carry.
Give them to Me. I’ll help you to stand.
The way is hard, but I’ll hold your hand.
