I will not leave you, I will not go
I will not stay here and let you go alone
For I have caught a glimpse of something life could be
I will not leave you
I will not leave you
I will not leave you - don't ask me.

 

What lies behind me, I know too well
I know the lifestyle and I know the hell
But I have seen in you the proof of something more
I will go with you
I will go with you
I will go with you - whatever lies before

 

For I don't know the road beyond the river
And I don't know how the Lord provides
I choose this day, and I am bound unto you
Let your people be my people
Let your people be my people
Let your people be my people

 

--Naomi--
Ruth, you mean well, and I am honored
But you'd leave behind everything you've ever known
My womb is empty, I'll bear no son for you
I have no future, I have no home

 

--Duet--
For I don't know the road beyond the river
And I don't know how the Lord provides

 

--Ruth--
I choose this day, and I am bound unto you
Let your people be my people
Let your people be my people
Let your people be my people
And your God will be my God.
