About the song
When the words of this song began to play in my mind, my thoughts naturally turned to the most beautiful person in my life – and the joy and exhilaration of the love that we share as husband and wife. But as the song progressed, I realized that it was, more specifically, an expression of the love-relationship that every believer in Christ can share with the One who is the object of our purest affection.
Lyrics
When I wake up in the morning You’re beside me
And I wonder at Your beauty in the dawn
Then I listen to Your promise on the gentle breeze of life
And I find the strength I need to carry on
With the sorrow of the past forever gone
(And) Most of all it’s in the knowing that You love me
That Your hand is there to help me if I fall
When You wrap Your arms around me as I face another day
Then I realize I love You most of all


I remember rugged pathways where You led me
When the raging storm was threatening my soul
As I stumbled in the darkness then I heard Your soothing voice
Reassuring me that You were in control
You were willing, Lord, to touch and make me whole

(Yet) Most of all it’s in the way You stood beside me
You were always there to help me when I call
Though at times the fears surrounded, like the fury of the sea
It was then I knew I need You most of all

Help me tell the world the story of Your mercy
How You paid their debt to rescue them from sin
That there’s freedom for the prisoner and release for the oppressed
There’s an open invitation to come in
To the only Place where New Life can begin

(But) Most of all they need to know they’ll be forgiven
That Your hand is there to help them when they fall
And no matter where they wander from the shelter of Your love
It’s Your mercy that they’re needing most of all
