Heavenly Father Loves Me

“Heavenly Father Loves Me,” Friend, Jan. 2004, 27

Heavenly Father Loves Me

It doesn’t matter if my eyes

Are blue or green or brown,

Or if I’m from the city

Or a little country town.

It doesn’t matter if my skin

Is yellow, brown, or white,

Or if I’m short and chubby

Or grow to reach great height.

It doesn’t matter if I’m smart

And get good marks in school,

Or if I find it hard to learn

Or follow all the rules.

I know that I am special—

As precious as a lamb—

And Heavenly Father loves me

Just the way I am.
