All of my life
I will seek
how a better father to be
so you will believe… what I now say

Regardless of all that may seem,
all that will be and has been
never forget
the love for you God placed in me

Ages before you were born
He gave you life… so follow Him.
Ages before your first word
He set you free… so worship Him.
Regardless of sin… and what you feel within
His love for you… is always there.

Out of your pride… humbleness…
Death to your selfishness…
All received through grace… from above.

Out of your strength… dependence…
Chose faith over self-confidence…
In all that you do… God will always be there for you.

Ages before you were born
He gave you life… so follow Him.
Ages before your first word
He set you free… so worship Him.
Regardless of sin… and what you feel within
His love for you… is always there.

Now you understand
why I pray down in my tears
and ask one day… you will also claim
He’s your king, your master, and your friend.

He gave you life… so follow Him.

He set you free… so worship Him.

Regardless of sin… and what you feel within
His love for you… is always there.

Regardless of all that may seem,
all that will be and has been
it’s never too late… to follow… Him.
