All Through the Years

black silhouette tree against a sunset over water:   All through the years You have been at my side O Lord, All through the years You have been my guide O Lord, All through the years You have taken my hand in Yours Kept me in Your love. All through the years Even when I was faithless Lord, All through the years, Even when I forgot you Lord, All thru the years, You've been faithful and true to me, Kept me in your love. 1 And in my nothingness and in my lowliness I sing your praises, Lord, I sing your faithfulness And then my heart o'erflows in joy and gratitude And I adore you, Lord! 2 Your grace has overflowed, your love enfolded me, And all my weaknesses have been a strength to me; And then my heart o'erflows in joy and gratitude, And I adore you Lord. 3 Show me the way, O Lord, to become more firm and true, To spend the years to come in greater love of you, And let my heart o'erflow in joy and gratitude, And I'll adore you Lord.

Lyrics

The lyrics are copyright so cannot be reproduced here. But they are currently available on this website. A rough outline is:
Chorus:
All through the years
You have been at my side O Lord,
All through the years
You have been my guide O Lord,
All through the years
You have taken my hand in Yours
Kept me in Your love.
All through the years
Even when I was faithless Lord,
All through the years,
Even when I forgot you Lord,
All thru the years,
You've been faithful and true to me,
Kept me in your love.

1 And in my nothingness and in my lowliness
I sing your praises, Lord, I sing your faithfulness
And then my heart o'erflows in joy and gratitude
And I adore you, Lord!

2 Your grace has overflowed, your love enfolded me,
And all my weaknesses have been a strength to me;
And then my heart o'erflows in joy and gratitude,
And I adore you Lord.

3 Show me the way, O Lord, to become more firm and true,
To spend the years to come in greater love of you,
And let my heart o'erflow in joy and gratitude,
And I'll adore you Lord.
