lyrics

If five years of vows fulfilled could fit inside a box
I'd see more life than most that's how close you brought me in
Fearing God more than men
Repent, repent and you did my darling so well
Kept me from the hell of this earth

High school was such a strange and unforgiving place
But that's right where we met I can't forget that first slow dance
Fearing God more than men
Forgive, forgive and you did my darling so well 
Kept me from the hell of this earth

By you, by you I'd know the love
By you, by you I'd know that God is love
He is love, he is love

College was really hard 
And freshman year we split
And I cried more than once over the hunch that we were through
Leaving God before men
Repent, repent but I did not darling as well
As you first had from the start
You played your part

By you, by you I'd know the love
By you, by you I'd know that God is love
He is love, he is love

If I'd never read
If I'd never prayed
Christ in you was such a sight that I would see his day

By you, by you I'd know the love
By you, by you I'd know that God is love
He is love, he is love

Wedding bells did chime
On our blessed day
Bride of Christ, bride of mine forever I will stay by you
