VERSE 01: I have wanted to say/Since that wonderful day/When your love caused my heart to unfold,/That I never had thought/All the gladness you brought/Would be more than two arms could hold.
VERSE 02: Like an angel of light/Has your smile put to flight/All the doubt that has darkened my way./In my heart there’s a vow/That my love for you now/Will live till the last judgement day.
REFRAIN: You came like a sunbeam that follows the rain,/And the mist of the years seemed to part/The touch of your hand come to banish the pain/That sorrow had left in my heart./You brought me a faith that has filled me with hope,/And a love that the whole world can see/You opened life’s doors,/And I love you because,/Because you believe in me.
