    Lord it seems I've found a crush
    or better yet the crush found me
    because these feelings that I've missed so much
    came back unexpectedly

    Lost and alone I sought your face
    and set my heart on things above
    again you showered me with your grace
    and gave me another try at love

    This chance you've given I gladly take
    to complete the life of this your child
    please keep me from making the types of mistakes
    that hinder you from being proud

    Give me the courage to open up my life
    so that she can see who I really am
    if it be your will that she's my wife
    I vow to be her loving husband

    In relationships I tend to move to fast
    which causes some emotional displacement
    so humbly I come before you to ask
    that you would grant my heart some patience

    To you alone I give my praise
    to her I'd give my all-in-all
    I ask now that you calm these butterflies
    so that I can give my lover a call

    Amen
