I didn't know that God was real.
I was walking aimlessly, living out my life.
No sense of purpose, just go with what I feel.
Like other people, fell in love, became a wife.
But the family that I've joined are not like me.
They see order in the chaos, they've got something that I lack.
And my husband's mother's standing firm in every tragedy.
Now I know her faith is real and I'm never going back.
So where you stay I will stay
And where you go I will go.
Your life of faith has been the way
That your God is the God I've come to know.
In my new life I might face poverty,
But the riches that I've gained are more than worth the cost.
And I can rest assured through all uncertainty,
I trust the hand that found me when I was lost.
I don't know why I found favour in His eyes.
Once an alien to grace, now in the homeland of the King.
And while I wait on Him He all my needs supplies
As I take refuge in the God of Israel, underneath His wing.
