Lord, I lift my child up to You
that you have given me
I come in prayer and faith against
the things that she can't see

I wonder if she'll ever know
about these tears that pour like rain
As I lay her sleeping in your arms
and pray in Jesus name

I would be the sacrifice
I would take all of her pain
I'd give my life, yes anything
to hear her praise your name

There's no place I wouldn't go
To hide her from the storm
It's exactly what you said to me
from beneath that thorny crown

Thinkin' back on all the years
I ran so hard so long
Sometimes I'd swear I looked for things
to take away my song

I know what lies out there
like a lion in the night
seeking to destroy her hope
lying waiting out of sight

I still carry all the scars
of ignorance and shame
Father, I'd do anything
to keep her from that pain

And I'm feelin' pretty helpless
awake again tonight
But I know that you will help me
teach her why you died

'Cause in the end the only thing
that will matter to me then
Is to hear you say well done
to my child while I sing

Hallelujah
What a Savior
Hallelujah
Christ the King

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
with my child I will sing.
