    I Am a Child of God

    Fervently

    1. I am a child of God,

    And he has sent me here,

    Has given me an earthly home

    With parents kind and dear.

    [Chorus]

    Lead me, guide me, walk beside me,

    Help me find the way.

    Teach me all that I must do

    To live with him someday.

    2. I am a child of God,

    And so my needs are great;

    Help me to understand his words

    Before it grows too late.

    [Chorus]

    Lead me, guide me, walk beside me,

    Help me find the way.

    Teach me all that I must do

    To live with him someday.

    3. I am a child of God.

    Rich blessings are in store;

    If I but learn to do his will

    I’ll live with him once more.

    [Chorus]

    Lead me, guide me, walk beside me,

    Help me find the way.

    Teach me all that I must do

    To live with him someday.
