You heard me cry and the sound drew you in.
My tears wash against your feet, but you persist.
“I’m not worth it; I’m not worth it,” I keep on saying.
“But you are. Of course, you are,” you insist.
You gather me in your arms, your hands on my back;
You sing to me your love, sing with all your heart.
“How can I not love you? I am your rock;
I will be here forever; I won’t let you fall apart.
“How can I not love you? I am your Creator;
I’d been with you since day one; and I could not leave—
Not when you sinned, not even when you cursed;
Not even when you lost control whenever you are peeved.
“How could you think I’ll ever stop? You are my daughter;
I gave up my life, so you could have a new one.
There is nothing that a father would want to see better
Than His child fully secured in His love and plan.”
