1. I am a child of God,And he has sent me here,Has given me an earthly homeWith parents kind and dear.
(Chorus)Lead me, guide me, walk beside me,Help me find the way.Teach me all that I must doTo live with him someday.
2. I am a child of God,And so my needs are great;Help me to understand his wordsBefore it grows too late.
3. I am a child of God.Rich blessings are in store;If I but learn to do his willI'll live with him once more.
