  1. Mama's Prayer

From the recording City on a Hill

Mama's Prayer was written especially for my son, Justin Borland, on his baptism June 4, 2000.  He is now16 and this is still my prayer for him.

 
 

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.
