Your Children

I have to admit it’s true
I hope it’s not true of you
I have a tendency
To lack the decency
Of giving each person their due

I have been quilty for years
Of giving a label from fear
If someone is different
I get defiant
And judge them from what I can see

Lord, help me to have compassion
To all who I have interaction
Let me see their heart
And know that they are
A child of yours just as I am

What A Wonderful Father

Oh what a wonderful Father
Oh what a marvelous friend
He’ll keep me in His loving arms
Until the very end

I wandered through my younger years
My path was growing dim
I didn’t know which way to turn
Until I turned to Him

He set my face to better things
He turned my life around
He took my feet from sinking sand
Placed me on solid ground

Oh what a wonderful Father
Oh what a marvelous friend
He’ll keep me in His loving arms
Until the very end

I’m resting in His promises
And when the trials come
I turn to His great mercy
He saves me by His love

One day He will come back for me
And take me to His throne
I’ll worship Him forevermore
In my eternal home

Oh what a wonderful Father
Oh what a marvelous friend
He’ll keep me in His loving arms
Until the very end

I Am His Child

I knelt before the Lord today
I bowed my head so I could pray
‘Twas then I heard Him softly say
I love you, son.  You are my child

The words were music to my ears
I closed my eyes and felt my tears
The joy inside my heart was real
I felt His love.  It made me smile

I love you too, Lord.  That you know
I asked you in so long ago
You’ve been with me and helped me grow
I thank you, Lord.  I am your child

My child, you have grown in faith
Now it is time you run the race
Please go tell others of my grace
They need to know my love as well

Yes, Lord.  I will do my part
I’ll go tell them to give their heart
I know you’ve loved them from the start
I’ll testify you love them all

With that I lifted up my praise
To Jesus Christ for His sweet grace
I thanked Him for His love this day
Because I know I am His child
