0, Little one
  Why can’t you see
That when you cry
  I cry with thee

 

I feel your pain
  I feel your loss
Remember My Son who
  Died on a cross

 

I know you loved him
  I loved him too
I’d never hurt anyone
  Just to keep you

 

I stood by your side
  As you rebelled and went wild
To show you my love
  I gave you a child

 

I have always been here
  Just a heart beat away
I prayed all your heart prayers
  When you found nothing to say

 

So next time you’re crying
  All tired and blue
Remember to seek me
  And let me love you.
