I who never had much I now have a treasure
A love too great to measure
I am blessed with happiness
And I'm done with loneliness

I who walked all alone not really knowing
Till now just where I was going
I am blessed because this day
You came show me the way

Till now I was like a grain of sand
Lost on a lonely beach
Yes till now I could never understand
That this was within my reach

I who cried to the moon see only sunshine
Because darling you're mine
I am blessed with wealth untold
A love worth more than gold
