"Daddy's Little Girl"


I came before my Father’s throne,
One eve when I was down,
And this my observation was,
“Lord, You’re nowhere to be found.”

I finally tired of fretting so,
My head I did then nod.
For I heard a voice so softly say,
“Be still, and know I’m God.”

I cried, “Dear Lord, from up above,
Oh please, look down on me.
Sin and strife have made me but,
A black sheep, in the Family.”

“For just one day, if in Your arms
That you would let me curl.
If just this once, that I could know,
I’m “Daddy’s” little girl."

And suddenly, there was an urge
And a voice that spoke to me,
“Open up the Book, My child,
To Psalm of David, 103.”

“You see, My child, I have not dealt
The penalty that’s due.
As the Heaven is high above the earth,
So is My love for you.”

“As far as the East is from the West,
That’s where My mercy lies.
Thy sin and strife have been removed,
The blood of My Son applies.”

“I pity you, My little one, and Yes,
I know your frame.
That dust you are and dust you’ll be,
And yet you love My Name.”

“Your life is like a vapor mist,
A trail that tags along,
But when the wind blows down on it,
It disappears, it’s gone.”

“But listen to Me, little one,
My child, I say to you.
My love and mercy know no bounds,
They’re everlasting true.”

“Unto this world be not conformed,
My child, you must believe.
But through renewing of your mind,
Be transformed unto Me.”

Oh, I may not don the eldest spot,
Nor was I born the youngest tot.
But when my soul on high was bought,
Just look what I got:

Oh, the peace of knowing there’s a home,
Of knowing I won’t go it alone,
Of knowing “Dad” is always there.
His Son for whom my sins to bear.

Of knowing that my prayers He’ll hear,
And knowing that He’ll always care…
That irritations bear a pearl,
I’m “Daddy’s” little girl!

“I will never leave thee nor forsake thee.”Hebrews 13:5
