And like the love She spread from day to day June, I'd like to tell you In my own sweet way You really got a hold on me Amazing grace, how sweet the sound (My Lord) saved a wretch like me I once was lost but Baby, now I'm found I was so blind, now I see I, too understand Going back into my life And though it was hard He would comfort me Ooh, baby, my home was depressed From the strain and strife I'm in gratitude for the Love she gave so tenderly And like the love She spread from day to day I'd like to tell you In my own sweet way You really got a hold on me I thank you, baby (thank you) You really got a hold on me I thank you, baby Oh, like the love She spread from day to day Honey, I wanna tell you In my own sweet way You know I love you (I love you) Oh, oh, you really got a hold on me I thank you, baby (I thank you, baby) I thank you, baby (I thank you, baby) I sure thank you, baby (Thank you, thank you, baby) Been good to me, baby (Thank you, baby) So good to me, boy (I wanna thank you, darling) I wanna thank you, baby (Oh, thank you, baby)
