Test Of Time

My life to you I give Lord, because I want you there.
 Not because of pressures, but because I know you care.
 I know in my heart, you see my doubts and fears. 
I know when sadness comes, you also see my tears. 

The good times and the bad, the happy and the sad. 
I care not which the world puts on me, I just give them all to thee.
 You are bigger and bolder than I, on your shoulders I can cry.
 So shelter me beneath the silver wing, put in my heart a song to sing.

 I know it's just to make me strong, to know the difference between right and wrong.
 I doubt not in your wisdom of the test, I just pray you give me the strength to do my best.
