Abba

You are my Daddy and I am the child you love.

When I wake up, I run to you. When I am hungry, I run to you. When I skin my knee, I run to you.  When I am frightened, I run to you. When my friend hurts my feelings, I run to you. When I have something to show you, I run to you. When I have a bad dream, I run to you. When I can’t reach, I run to you. When I don’t understand, I run to you. When I am lonely, I run to you. When I want to be held, I run to you.

You are my Daddy and I am the child you love.

You look at me with eyes full of tenderness, sparkling with laughter, glowing with delight, kind with concern. You listen attentively to my questions. You hear my cry to you in the night.

You are my Daddy and I am the child you love.

When I am at play, you smile. When I am being silly, you smile. When I am excited, you smile. When I try and fail, you smile. When I am sleeping peacefully, you smile.

You are my Daddy and I am the child you love.

When I fall down, you set me back on my feet. When I am hurt, you kiss the pain away. When I cry, your strong arms comfort me. When I am sick, you sit awake all night beside my bed. When I am lost, you drop everything to look for me. When nightmares haunt my sleep, you rock me on your lap. When we walk together, your warm hand is always there to hold.

You are my Daddy and I am the child you love.

I do not worry about my food. I do not wonder where I will get my clothing. I am not concerned about having a place to sleep.

You are my Daddy and I am the child you love.

You laugh with me in my joy. You weep with me in my sorrow. You delight in my successes. You are kind to me in my failures.

You are my Daddy and I am the child you love.

You mend what is broken. You heal what is wounded. You restore what is sick.

You are my Daddy and I am the child you love.

You are my hero and I know you can do anything.

You are my Daddy and I am the child you love.
