Songs for Worship

Sing joyfully to the LORD, you righteous; it is fitting for the upright to praise him.  Praise the LORD with the harp; make music to him on the ten-stringed lyre. Sing to him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy.

Psalm 33:1-3 (NIV)

 

   

Child of Mine

 

Background

This is more of a solo or special music offering than a congregational song.  It is the voice of God claiming a person as she is baptized.  God's promise of His continual presence and love is an encouragement and comfort in the hard times of life.

A friend requested a song for the baptism of a friend of hers and her daughter. It has been a pleasure to see this borne out as the person whose baptism this song celebrates has continued to grow in the faith.

 

Bible Verses

Romans 8:15-17

Themes

Baptism, Assurance, Intimacy with God, Eternal Life

 

Lyrics

Chorus
Child of Mine
I call you in the water
And put my name on you.
Child of Mine 
Child of Mine
I claim you as my daughter
And you will always be
A child of Mine.

Verse 1
Water flowing
Spirit blowing
Now I see your faith is showing
While my life within you is growing strong.
And now I hold you
In my arms of grace
And you can rest your weary heart in my embrace
For you are loved
O child of mine.

Verse 1
In a world that‚€™s so uncertain
Many lives so full of hurting
I will give to you my promise now
That I will never leave you
I won‚€™t grieve you
I will never let you down
I‚€™ll be around
For you are loved
O child of mine.
