You’ve kept watch over me since I was a child.
You’ve stayed close when my heart has gone running wild.
You’ve welcomed me back again and again.
You’ve offered your kindness, forgiven my sin.


    You’re the source of all the good gifts I know.
    No one else can equal the love you show.
    Though my praise for you often comes so slow.
    How I long for my life with you to grow.

In your actions you show the proof of your care.
In your presence comes comfort, you’re everywhere.
In your mercy I’ve found hope that will last.
In your second life I am saved from the past.

Song Info

  • We learned this song at Bible camp and fell in love with the down-to-earth message of hope, forgiveness, and grace. It’s still sung at many camps across the country, but no one knows who wrote it.
