When I said I do


by Cheryl L Jestis

When I said I do, What did I know?
Unsure of you, I hid it though
If you felt it too, it did not show
I guess you knew, that love could grow

What would this new life bring? And which way would it go?
Love to make our hearts sing, or a cold and empty show?
Do we all want to cling to what we already know?
Like a flower in the spring, let it bloom, watch it grow

Now some time has passed and we're not so close
Can we make it last? Recover from life's blows
Move ahead, make it past, trouble that comes and goes
Life moves so fast, but it is the life that we chose

When I said I do, What did I know?
Unsure of you, I hid it though
If you felt it too, it did not show
I guess you knew, that love could grow

New peace, new hope, new life from God above
Our child is born, a gift from the God of love
We're born again, more joy than we could dream of
Now we know our God will lead our home, with love

Another child to love and lead in faith
Seeking God day by day, we grow in grace
He guides our hearts and we hear his voice
We pray for faith to make the right choice

When I said I do, What did I know?
Unsure of you, I hid it though
If you felt it too, it did not show
I know you knew, our love would grow
