When I was just a little child, my Lord was real to me.

He touched my heart and filled my soul with love and harmony.

As I grew up, He walked with me and carried every woe.

He helps me understand His ways and leads me as I go.

I drifted off the narrow road and wondered into harm.

He stayed with me and led me back with His all loving arm.

Now I have children of my own and know the pain He felt

When I His child wondered off in worldly ways and dwelt.
