"IN YOUR ARMS"
I'm looking at this little child as she falls asleep.
She rubs her eyes and looks at me so calm and meek.
She lies here on my bed and trusts that I will take
Good care, & I will keep her safe until she wakes.
She's just a little girl, not a care in the world.
Sparkling little eyes shine like the bright, blue sky.
Lord, I want to feel like her, and lie here in Your arms
Where I've found serenity so true, like this little child has found.
In Your arms, my Lord, I find my peace of mind
Away from the worldly ways I have easily left behind.
Oh Lord, help me to put my trust in You.
I know that You'll take care of me
As long as I stay close to You.
In Your arms, my Lord, You sing to me Your song,
As I cling to You, You protect me from all wrong.
Lord, I want to be like this little baby girl,
And come and lie and close my eyes,
And forget about the world.
I want to come and lie with You
And listen to what You say.
I want to have take that leap of faith
To believe it all the way.
I want to take Your hand and hold it in on my heart.
I want You, Lord, to guide me in the way that I should walk.
And as the days are darkening, & the night is drawing near,
And as I look around and see the world is full of fear,
I know You're always there, waiting to share
The love You have for me, as a father for her daughter.
