Lord, you know my heart
And all my desires
And the secret things I'll never tell.
Lord, you know them well.
Though I may be young,
I see and understand
That at times, like sheep, we go astray
And things get out of hand.

So I promise to be true to you,
To live my life in purity
As unto you, waiting for the day
When I hear you say,
Here is the one I have created
Just for you
.

Until then, o lord
I will be content
Knowing that true love will come someday.
It will only come from you.
Cause I have seen the suffering
That loneliness can cause
When we choose to give our love away
Without a righteous cause.

So I promise to be true to you,
To live my life in purity
As unto you, waiting for the day
When I hear you say,
Here is the one I have created
Just for you.

    This song was my theme song to god when I was waiting for the man he has for me for my lifetime partner. And true enough it is good to wait for the right guy to marry and not rushing to whoever is available and attractive looking to us girls. I hope it touches a lot of single womens hearts out there the way it touched mine. I have now a very loving husband and a one yr old daughter. Praise god!
