As long as I'm with you,
I know that all things I can do.
It's because of you I get up each and every day,
And to you every night I pray.
Thank you Lord for blessing me another again,
and forgiving though you know that I've sinned.
Giving my mother the strenght to go on,
because I would go crazy if I woke up and she was gone.
My sister who has struggled through school,
and for getting on to telling me not to be a fool.
Putting food on our table,
with you I know I'm able.
My sweet grandma that has been sick here lately,
she travels back and forth and you get her there safely.
My Aunt that just recently got married to this nice man,
and with you she's being all that she can.
My whole entire family that struggles during there time of need,
I think about it and I say it's you yes indeed.
The boy that I met that has changed my life,
I hope faith that someday I will be his wife.
Though we struggle through hard times,
because of you there are no crimes.
I know that all things I can do,
Lord, as long as I'm with you
