Child, rest, lay your head down and take a breath,
The weight that you carry has made you weary.
Child, hold fast to the words that I have spoken.
As your heart beats to mend what is broken.
I Am a Father who fights for his children’s freedom;
Did I not part waters for this very reason.
I Am a Father who meets his children’s every need;
Did I not send manna from heaven so as to feed.
Child, be of good courage, as you do your part;
It is a precious gift to have a softened heart.
Child, fear not, as you face the darkness of each day.
Keep your eyes on me as you continue to pray.
I am a Father who hears his children’s cries;
Did I not send my very own son to die.
I am a Father who will one day return for His children’s embrace.
Did I not say it is in this very moment I am preparing such a place.
Child, keep the faith, even when valleys shadow your heavenly view;
For trials prepare you for each new breakthrough.
Child, come close, when you are unable to know;
These days are designed to help you grow.
I Am a Father who will heal his children’s hurts;
Did I not promise to return upon a white horse.
I Am a Father who knows all that his children desire;
Did I not myself set the soul on fire.
Child, hold to this hope when you feel as though this world is falling apart;
For I have been here with you from the very start.
I am your Father- dear child,take heart!
