In the ways of a child, I will love you
I will try to make you smile
I will do what you do, say what you say
Bring you joy even just for a while.
In the ways of a child, I will falter,
I will fail and I will fall, I know you are always there for me,
You always answer my call.
Chorus 0, my Jesus, you’re the reason I am here
I live because of you.
Let me be all you want me to be
Be with me in all that I do.
In the ways of a child, take me by the hand,
Yes, lead, and I will follow,
As the dawn breaks through, past the dark of night,
Together we will face each tomorrow.
In the ways of a child, I will thank you
For each gift of love you give,
Would that someday I be with you for ever
In the ways of a child, I will live.
