You never gave up on me
Though I did
You’d never walk out on me
When I fled
And now You have me at the altar
I do, I do take this Man
In the desert for a season of tempting
In the lonely wilderness again
But You will never leave nor forsake me
I believe, I believe in this Man
When are You coming back for me, my love?
When are You going to take me home?
I don’t belong here
No, no, no
There will I be free from my doubts and fears
That no one seems to really care for me down here
No, no, no
But should You tarry, I will understand
I’s a lady in waiting for my Man
Pure linen white what was scarlet
For the virgin bride who was a harlot
Rise up, my love, and come away
I am sick with love, what can I say?
The dowry of the Groom begins to unfold
And carry me away across the threshold
Today You have me at the altar
I believe, I believe in this Man.
This day I pledge myself to You
I do, I do, I do, I do
I do take this Man …
