Because I Am a Child of God

Friend Magazine, 2015/10 Oct

It doesn’t really matter if I’m short or if I’m tall,

Or if I like to sing or read a book or throw a ball,

No matter if I finish first or if I trip and fall,

I know I’m loved because I am a child of God.

Whenever thunder crashes and the wind goes howling by,

Or when a bully threatens me or teardrops fill my eye,

Before my fear starts growing, I still know just what to try.

I always pray because I am a child of God.

If ever I should want to be dishonest or unkind,

Or things that are not good or true begin to cloud my mind,

I listen for the voice that brings the peace I need to find.

I think of Him because I am a child of God.

A child of God. He watches night and day.

He cheers me on, and hears me when I pray.

No matter what, I won’t give up. I’ll listen and obey.

I’ll choose the right because I am a child of God.
