Dear God,
It's me again...I am so far from where I could have been
Dear God, I would be incomplete
But you came and touched my life in time of need
So I'm thanking you for all you've done
And for sacrificing your only son


Chorus:
That's why I'm writing you this letter
To let you know that I love you
Thank you for all that I am and for being a friend
Lord, my love for you'll never end


Dear God,
It's Shawn this time...I'm so grateful for the way you've changed my life
I'd give all I have, I'd just throw it all away
For a chance to walk with you through heaven's gates
That's why I'm thanking you for your love and your grace
I don't deserve these blessings that you give to me


Chorus

Interlude:

Dear God,
As a humble man I come to you like a child
Needing your knowledge, your love, and your guidance Lord
Thank you for trusting me with my own life's decisions
But I'm just a man, and I don't deserve this incredible life that you've given me
I love you Lord, I love you


Dear God, it's me Wanya...I'm so sorry, so sorry for living for me
But I promise from this day on I'm livin' for you
'Cause without you my life means nothing


Chorus
