Lyrics

First Verse

I am a child of God,

And he has sent me here.

Has given me an earthly home

With parents kind and dear.

Second Verse

I am a child of God,

And so my needs are great.

Help me to understand his words

Before it grows too late.

Third Verse

I am a child of God.

Rich blessings are in store.

If I but learn to do his will,

I'll live with him once more.

Fourth Verse

I am a child of God.

His promises are sure;

Celestial glory shall be mine

If I can but endure.

Chorus

Lead me, guide me,

Walk beside me,

Help me find the way.

Teach me all that I must do

To live with him someday.
