Like a child,
Innocent and sweet,
May I listen to You
Humbly at Your feet.

Wide-eyed and amazed,
Faithful and full of love,
Like a child may I look
Always Above.

Longing for You,
For Your protection and care,
Like a child may I cling
Keeping You to me near.

When You call my name,
May I hear home in Your voice;
Like a child running home,
In You may I rejoice.

When I fall and stumble
May I run quickly to You,
Like a child may I trust
In all that You do.

When victory I see,
May I know ‘tis not my own;
Like a child may I recall
I work never alone.

When darkness enshrouds,
When sun embraces with light,
Like a child may I see You
In day and in night.

Yea, like a child,
My Lord, ever may I be;
Yea, I am Your child
For all eternity.

May pride be far from me,
May humility ever reign;
May I trust as a child
Even in trial and in pain.

How I long for You,
For Your protection and care,
I cling to You, my Jesus,
Keeping You to me near.

Wide-eyed and amazed,
I marvel at Your love;
Like a child I look to Abba,
My Father Above.

How thankful I am, Lord,
That You and I did meet;
May I be Your child forever,
Innocent and sweet.
