There was a time when my life was empty
There was a time when my heart grew cold
But you came to me with a heart of mercy
You came to me with a heart of gold.

Chorus:
I can’t get back the years that have passed
But this one small thing I do:
I will give the rest of my life
The rest of my life
I will give the rest of my life
to You.

I loved the world and it left me lonely
I loved myself and it left me blind
But you came to me with a love enduring
You came to me with a love divine.

Bridge:
If I could retrieve these years
I would give them all to You
I would live them all for You
If I could retrieve these years
I would give them all to You
I would give my all for You.

A fost un timp, viaţa mi-a fost goală
Un timp când inima s-a răcit.
Dar Tu ai venit cu-a Ta milă, Doamne
Tu ai venit cu dragostea Ta.

Refren:
Nu pot schimba, tot ce-a trecut,
Dar acest lucru mic îl fac:
Ţie-Ţi dau tot ce mi-a rămas
Tot ce mi-a rămas.
Ţie-Ţi dau tot ce mi-a rămas,
Doamne.

Am iubit lumea şi-am rămas singur
Pe min’ m-am iubit şi-asta m-a orbit.
Dar Tu ai venit cu multă răbdare,
Tu ai venit cu dragostea Ta.

Br.
De-aş putea trăi din nou aceşti ani
Ţie Ţi i-aş da, Doamne,
Ţi i-aş închina, Doamne.
De-aş putea trăi din nou aceşti ani
Ţie Ţi i-aş da, Doamne
Ţi i-aş închina, Doamne.
