    Your love like the sacred word to me
    I hold it dear and trust it true
    Because that's the way its supposed to be
    IT comforts me and leads me
    Like scripture

    I see you do and be all you can for me
    And I get to wondering do I
    deserve to see one
    as beautiful as he
    purer than any in this world could be
    like the one they refer to in
    scripture

    Could I never in my life wish to find
    A man that is a quarter not a dime
    worth his weight in gold
    and always true I'm told
    his love is real
    like scripture

    He walks through all kinds
    of valleys for me
    without my love he says
    he will weep
    he made a covenant to forever keep
    He treasure me

    And when all is done and all is said
    he crowns me bless
    from my feet to my head
    he blesses my essence with so much light
    I know that this man is right
    because when we're alone
    his love he recites
    Like scripture

    Like scripture
    It comforts me and leads me
    Because that's the way its supposed to be
    I hold it dear and trust it true
    Your love like sacred word to me


    Read the first and last stanza and let me know what you think of what I did.

    Thank you I found an old flame that turned himself into a fire set up under me and began to inspire, and this is what became of it.
