Get Ready to Cry!!

My sister was searching some blogs the other day and came across these additional verses to I am a Child of God.

They were written for parents who's children pass away. For those of you who attended Savannah's funeral you may remember that we sang I am a Child of God at Savannah's request. To find the music and hear the tune go here.

I am a child of God and He has called me home.
My earthly journey's through but still, I do not walk alone.
He leads me, guides me, walks beside me, helps me find the way.
He welcomed me with open arms. I live with Him today.

I am a child of God and I have gone ahead.
My earthly life was brief but oh, such peace and love you gave.
You loved me, held me, stood beside me and though I cannot stay.
You gave me much to help me and I live with Him today.

I am a child of God and I will wait for you.
Celestial glory shall be ours, if you can but endure.
I'll lead you, guide you, walk beside you. Help you find the way.
I'll welcome you with open arms One bright Celestial day.
