What is a child?
A child is the essence of innocence and pure heart
Delicate as a flower - helpless - without power
A child is a joy to it's grandparents who see the future in their eyes
A child can open our eyes again to see the beauty in spring rain
A child is a story just beginning when ours is halfway
A child is Love a gift of God's love - the continuation of His plans
He was a child too - when he came to earth to save me and you.
Mercy to the children who are suffering - release them too
Hound the monsters who attack them in their dreams
and let the children come to You - to find safe harbour in Your arms.
