1. Heavenly Father, are you really there?And do you hear and answer ev'ry child's prayer?Some say that heaven is far away,But I feel it close around me as I pray.Heavenly Father, I remember nowSomething that Jesus told disciples long ago:"Suffer the children to come to me."Father, in prayer I'm coming now to thee.
2. Pray, he is there;Speak, he is list'ning.You are his child;His love now surrounds you.He hears your prayer;He loves the children.Of such is the kingdom, the kingdom of heav'n.
