Charted: 5 1
  • For all those times you stood by me
    For all the truth that you made me see
    For all the joy you brought to my life
    For all the wrong that you made right
    For every dream you made come true
    For all the love I found in you
    I'll be forever thankful baby
    You're the one who held me up
    Never let me fall
    You're the one who saw me through through it all

    You were my strength when I was weak
    You were my voice when I couldn't speak
    You were my eyes when I couldn't see
    You saw the best there was in me
    Lifted me up when I couldn't reach
    You gave me faith 'cause you believed
    I'm everything I am
    Because you loved me

    You gave me wings and made me fly
    You touched my hand I could touch the sky
    I lost my faith, you gave it back to me
    You said no star was out of reach
    You stood by me and I stood tall
    I had your love I had it all
    I'm grateful for each day you gave me
    Maybe I don't know that much
    But I know this much is true
    I was blessed because I was loved by you

    You were my strength when I was weak
    You were my voice when I couldn't speak
    You were my eyes when I couldn't see
    You saw the best there was in me
    Lifted me up when I couldn't reach
    You gave me faith 'cause you believed
    I'm everything I am
    Because you loved me

    You were always there for me
    The tender wind that carried me
    A light in the dark shining your love into my life
    You've been my inspiration
    Through the lies you were the truth
    My world is a better place because of you

    You were my strength when I was weak
    You were my voice when I couldn't speak
    You were my eyes when I couldn't see
    You saw the best there was in me
    Lifted me up when I couldn't reach
    You gave me faith 'cause you believed
    I'm everything I am
    Because you loved me

    You were my strength when I was weak
    You were my voice when I couldn't speak
    You were my eyes when I couldn't see
    You saw the best there was in me
    Lifted me up when I couldn't reach
    You gave me faith 'cause you believed
    I'm everything I am
    Because you loved me

    I'm everything I am
    Because you loved me Writer/s: Diane Warren

    "You were my strength when I was weak
    You were my voice when I couldn't speak
    You were my eyes when I couldn't see
    You saw the best there was in me
    Lifted me up when I couldn't reach
    You gave me faith 'cause You believed
    I'm everything I am
    Because You loved me"

    Name a single person who can see the best in us: It's our God.

    He was our strength when we were weak
    He was our voice when we couldn't speak
    He was our eyes when we couldn't see
    He saw the best there was in us
    Lifted us up when we couldn't reach
    He gave us faith 'cause He believed
    We're everything we are
    Because He loved us
