The sky, the land, and the sea
And why it all came to be
I do not understand
Why I was born… Why I will die…
And why you walk by my side…
I do not comprehend

CHORUS
But I know You’re here
Through my tears and my heart I know you
Be with me always my king and my friend
I choose You as the purpose of my life

At the birth of a child
Its innocence, love, and smile
My wonder will not end
How love is stronger then power…
How faith is greater then knowledge…
I want to see! I want to learn!

CHORUS
And I know You’re here
Through my tears and my heart I know you
Be with me always my king and my friend
I choose You as the purpose of my life

Why such a contrast of life and death
A spring time flower growing on a grave
I cannot grasp it
Why so much pain is mixed with love?
Why sin and hypocrisy is in my life?
I cannot accept it

CHORUS
How do I know You’re here?
Through my tears and my heart I know you
Be with me always my king and my friend
I choose You as the purpose of my life

By controlling my life I loose it
By giving it to You I gain it
How? I cannot explain!
That by grace, not by works, I survive
That by faith in You I’m alive
Please show me everyday

CHORUS
I know You’re so near…
Through my tears and my heart I know you
Be with me always my king and my friend
I choose You as the purpose of my life
