Lyrics

Verse I
When I was down for the count and couldn't get to my feet
Backs were turned, another stone on a mountain of defeat
You looked, you saw more than my broken wings
You saw the possibilities

Chorus
You're my hope through the night, you're the morning's dawning light
A waking hymn that lifts me to my knees
You're the one I give my heart, you're my do-me-no-harm
Cause' you're the first to believe

Verse II
And I know I gave you so much cause for doubt
I hid from, then pushed away, the hand that you held out
An island of pride sinking fast in the sea
But I could not drown your faith in me

Chorus
You're my hope through the night, you're the morning's dawning light
A waking hymn that lifts me to my knees
You're the one I give my heart, you're my do-me-no-harm
Cause' you're the first to believe

Instrumental

Chorus
You're my hope through the night, you're the morning's dawning light
A waking hymn that lifts me to my knees
You're the one I give my heart, you're my do-me-no-harm
Cause' you're the first to believe
