When you hold something this precious,
You're told to check it everyday.
Some will try to take it from you,
Somehow it always gets away.
Indeed, this beauty beyond words
Holds quite a lustrous shine.
At times I have to pinch myself
Just to believe this jewel is mine.
For so long I was impoverished,
‘Never believed I'd see this day.
Not taking a thing for granted,
Let me just take this time to say...
I've been the jester, been the king,
Set high upon the throne.
Escaped the Darkness to this light
That shines for me, alone.
I've worn the rags, I've worn the wealth,
But now I've seen just what life's worth.
To hold this jewel, to hold your love,
I know I'm the richest man on Earth.
When God puts a tear in your eye,
He puts a rainbow in your heart.
