My daughter I say to you
You are the apple of my eye
Beautiful daughter no need to sigh
From as far as the east is to the west
Come sit with me for only in me will you find true rest
It's ok to stay by my feet for now
You ask, "But Father how do I live with all this pain and sorrow?"
I say Through my love and grace I will show you The Way
Just keep ahold of my hand I will carry you just as I did
The man, remember the man in the sand,
Remember the footprints?
For I will draw the line in the sand
I Will carry you across to a far away land.
For there is great joy ahead
My love abounds, there is love all around
In time the sadness will once again be all but a tiny sound
Your heart is full of my love
keep hold of my hand I say it again keep hold of my hand
You will hear my voice wherever you go
For I am Lord and it is only love that I sew
Just Hold on to my hand and never let go.
