More than Blessed

I'll never forget the day I first saw you,
Standing there singing, strumming your guitar.
My heart fluttered, through I tried to ignore,
The feeling that I knew you,
That I'd seen you before.

On the day my car crashed,
And you came to my rescue,
I felt it again,
That I had known you before.

And that's when I knew
That I was more than blessed,
The way you loved me,
Was the way I liked best.
When you looked in my eyes,
And smiled back at me,
Yeah, that's when I knew,
That I was more than blessed.

Well, after four months of wondering,
And four months of praying,
The day finally came, when you asked me to consider
A future together, a future with you.
And that's when God told me,
The reason I knew you.
He had formed our hearts together, to become as one,
Before I met you, before you met me.

And that's when I knew,
That I was more than blessed.
The way you loved me,
Was the way I liked best.
When you looked in my eyes,
And smiled back at me,
Yeah, that's when I knew,
That I was more than blessed.

We've got a long road behind us now,
And a longer one ahead,
But with your arms around me,
And God at our side,
Our love will grow stronger,
As the years go by.

And that's when I'll know,
That I am more than blessed.
The love you give me,
Is the love I like best.
When you look in my eyes,
And smile back at me,
Yeah, that's when I'll know,
That I am more than blessed.
