Lyrics

As A Child
Poem by William Aubert Luce
Music by Martin Broones

Father, make me as a child,
Teachable and free from wrong,
I would learn to walk with God,
I would hear the angel song.

Give to me the humble mind,
Tender, faithfully undefiled.
Pride is frail and sin is blind.
Make me as a little child.

As a child who runs with joy
Where the morning breeze has blown
So let my feet run swift and free
In a way I have not known.

Give it to me the newborn heart,
Gentle, blameless, unbeguiled.
Make me fearless, make me mild,
Father, make me as a child.
