I have watched the gleaners working through my fields
I have noticed you among them, modest and foreign
And I have seen you lonely - and I know how that feels
As you're following the maidens and ignoring all the young men.

 

You've come to us a widow with the mother of your groom
I hear you would not leave her to stay in your own country
And though she now is bitter at the losses she's accrued
You are faithful to her and feed her with your barley

 

--Ruth--
Give unto me an inheritance with Your people, O God
Your people, O God
Let me be counted among the faithful.

 

--Boaz--
I am fearful for you, in case you are na´ve
So stay here in my own fields and I'll be your provision
I know you need a husband and I see that you believe
I hope he's worthy of you when at last you find him

 

--Ruth--
Give unto me an inheritance with Your people, O God
Your people, my God
Let me be counted among the faithful.

 

--Boaz--
I wake at the threshing floor with someone at my feet
Oh my precious, darling Ruth - can it really be you?
Twine our lives together, Lord, make two broken ones complete
I am your kinsman-redeemer

 

And with my cloak I'll be protecting you
And with my cloak I'll place my claim on you
And with my cloak I pledge my love to you

 

--chorus--
And with My wings I'll overshadow you
And with My blood I've made my claim on you
And with My life I've pledged my love for you

 

--Ruth--
Give unto me an inheritance with Your people, my God
My people, my God!
Let me be counted among the faithful.
