I stand in the quiet,
But I feel him coming.
I begin to run,
As fast as my little legs can carry me.
I can see him now,
as he bends down,
preparing to catch me in his arms,
and lift me to the sky.

He is my protector,
and he has given me so much,
for which I am eternally grateful.
My joy over whelms me,
As I sit on my Father's lap,
As he sits on the throne.
I am a child of God.
So are you.
And he didn't just do this to me,
He did this for you too.
