I Couldn’t Ask for More


words & music: Keith Scott © 1985


You took me out of time, you put me in eternity,

you put my name back in the pages of the book of life

You showed me I was wrong, you gave me eyes so I could see.

You put the answers to the questions right in front of me



I want to shout it in the street, you made a broken man complete

You took a part of me and you gave a part of you.

I want to lift my voice and sing. you changed a pilgrim to a king.

You gave a love like I have never loved before.

I couldn’t ask for more.



You showed me all the signs, you whispered counsel in my mind

And now the echoes of your voice keep ringing in my ears.

You kept me from the rain, you lifted me above the storm.

You dried my eyes and I could see you shining through my tears.



I have to let the whole world know, I never want to let you know.

I learned a lesson that I know I can’t ignore

You found me hanging by a thread, you gave me hope and cleared my head

You took my hand and set my feet back on the floor.

I couldn’t ask for more.



What could I ask for, you gave me everything. I couldn’t ask for more.

I don’t need anything else. I’ll never want again. I couldn’t ask for more.

I couldn’t ask for more. I couldn’t ask for more.
