Lyrics

MAMA’S PRAYER

by Caryn Borland

  

1.  WHEN I LOOK AT YOU MY BABY BOY A MIRACLE I SEE

A DREAM COME TRUE FOR YOUR DADDY AND ME

A GIFT FROM GOD’S TREASURES

AN EXPRESSION OF OUR LOVE

AS WE PRESENT YOU THIS DAY T

O THE LORD UP ABOVE

WE PRAY THAT HE WOULD GUIDE YOU

WHEREFER YOU GO

THAT HIS JOY AND GRACE YOU’D COME TO KNOW

 

CHORUS

CHILDREN ARE A BLESSING A HERITAGE FROM THE LORD

MAY GOD BLESS AND KEEP YOU ALL OF YOUR DAYS

CHILDREN ARE A BLESSING A HERITAGE FROM THE LORD

MAY YOU GROW IN HIS WORD, DELIGHT IN HIS WAYS

MAY GOD BLESS AND KEEP YOU ALL OF YOUR DAYS

 

2.  WE OFFER UP OUR LIVES TO GOD

AND PRAY THAT HE WOULD GIVE

US WISDOM IN TEACHING YOU

THE TRUTH AND HOW TO LIVE

TO BECOME A MAN OF HONOR AFTER GOD’S OWN HEART

BE FILLED WITH HIS SPIRIT,

FROM HIS WAYS NEVER DEPART

MAY YOU BRING JOY DO THOSE AROUND YOU

WHEREVER YOU GO

GLORIFY THE LORD IN ALL YOU DO

 

CHORUS 2

YOU ARE A BLESSING OUR HERITAGE FROM THE LORD

MAY GOD BLESS AND KEEP YOU ALL OF YOUR DAYS

YOU ARE A BLESSING A HERITAGE FROM THE LORD

MAY YOUR LIFE BE FILLED WITH WONDER

AS YOU LIVE EACH NEW DAY

SAFE IN KNOWING WE’LL LOVE YOU ALWAYS

 

ENDING

MAY GOD BLESS AND KEEP YOU ALL OF YOUR DAYS

 

Written especially for Justin Borland on his baptism June 4, 2000.
