My Precious Child, things will be okay.
You don't have to carry the world on your shoulders today.
Even when things seem impossible don't forget, I am there.

My Precious Child, things will be all right.
I've been waiting for just the right moment to show you the light.
Even though you don't understand my ways, don't despair, I am there.

Surely He has borne our griefs, nailed them to the cross.
The Way is hard but remember child, He is saving us for Himself.

My Precious Child, He will always do,
Only the things that He knows are just right for you.
Even though the trials can be hard to bear, please believe, He cares.

My Precious Child don't you know that He
Loves you deeply and for all eternity.
Day by day with grace meeting every need, He will guide your way.

Surely He has borne our griefs, nailed them to the cross.
The Way is hard but remember child, He is saving us for Himself.

And we know His will is directed ever to His children's good.
And we know He loves us forever, at least we should.
So we cast our burdens before Him, and we pray: Thy will be done.
Knowing nothing's too hard for the One who gave His only Son.

Precious Child, don't you be afraid.
You don't have to carry the world on your shoulders today.
Even when things seem impossible it's not impossible for me.
