Title: Mere Words


Mere words cannot express

How much I love you

You’re everything to me


My hope, My strength 

From day to day

A peace that dwells within


I can’t express mere words alone

You’re greater than my tongue can say

Father God I love you forevermore


You’re everything, Oh you’re everything

Yes, you’re everything to me
