Lyrics

  1. 1. I am a child of God,
    And he has sent me here,
    Has given me an earthly home
    With parents kind and dear.
  2. 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. 2. I am a child of God,
    And so my needs are great;
    Help me to understand his words
    Before it grows too late.
  4. Lead me, guide me, walk beside me,
    Help me find the way.
    Teach me all that I must do
    To live with him someday.
  5. 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.
  6. Lead me, guide me, walk beside me,
    Help me find the way.
    Teach me all that I must do
    To live with him someday.
  7. 4. I am a child of God.
    His promises are sure;
    Celestial glory shall be mine
    If I can but endure.
  8. Lead me, guide me, walk beside me,
    Help me find the way.
    Teach me all that I must do
    To live with him someday.
