"The things that I love, I hold dear to my heart
They are borrowed and Not mine at all
Jesus only let me use them
To brighten my life, So remind me, remind me dear Lord...

Roll back the curtain of memory now and then, Show me where you brought me from and
Where I could have been, Just remember I'm a human and human's forget
So remind me, remind me dear Lord"
