If It Wasn't For You
Music by Roger Linder
Lyrics by Roger Linder and Bethany Carlson
Mary Magdalene Everything I've loved has now been taken away.
You were there all along, now for your return I pray.

If it wasn't for you
I know I couldn't make it through my life
If it wasn't for you
If it wasn't for you

You had a love that was true
And I know you've helped me through my strife
You had a love that was true
You had a love that was true

You were my hope, my joy, my song,
I gave you my affection.
You gave me strength to carry on
You gave my life direction.

I need someone and that someone's got to be you.
Though you've been there all along you're just like a prayer come true.

If it wasn't for you
I know I couldn't make it through my life
If it wasn't for you
If it wasn't for you

You had a love that was true
And I know you've helped me through my strife
You had a love that was true
You had a love that was true

I said that I would never leave
But now you've left me.
Was I a fool? Was I naive?
I need to know, please tell me.

If it wasn't for you
I know I couldn't make it through my life
If it wasn't for you
If it wasn't for you

You had a love that was true
And I know you've helped me through my strife
You had a love that was true
You had a love that was true

Jesus Peace be with you, Mary my child
Let God in your heart
A new life to start

Peace be with you, understand
You need to be strong
You need to belong
