    Because I Am a Child of God

    Music: Because I Am a Child of God

    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.
