Daddy's Arms

Sleep my child sleep, rest here by my side
You've found a place away from harm, a place where love abides
And I see you lying here with not a worry or a fear
You are safe and warm from all the world as you rest
Here in your daddy's arms

Oh please forgive me child, I've failed to hold you tight
A moment that my back was turned you drifted from my side
And now alone, you've fallen down, your pain bears the alarm:
You're not protected from the world
When you're outside of daddy's arms

Daddy's arms are kind and gentle as they reach out to you
You know that when you're hurting they say I am hurting too
My constant understanding you may never comprehend
But safe and warm in daddy's arms, you know you've got a friend

Mere babes in Christ, God sees us, clinging to His side
Our Father holds us close to Him where safely we abide
But as we grow we tend to pull away and lose our hold
Our Father reaches out to us, still, we neglect what we are told

Somehow, though, His voice keeps calling us back to His side
With a promise of His love and care as His arms are open wide
And nothing is so clear now, as our soul He quickly charms:
Though scars may show we've been away
Now we can rest here in our Father's arms

Our Father's arms are kind and gentle as they reach out to you
You know that when you're hurting they say He is hurting too
His constant understanding you may never comprehend
But safe and warm in our Father's arms, you know you've got a friend
