Let Her Be a Child Song Lyrics
Now i lay me down to sleep
I pray the lord my soul to keep
If i should die before i wake
I pray the lord my soul to take
She mustn't know the sorrow
She mustn't know the tears
Tomorrow mustn't bring her
A future that she fears
How many now lay crying?
Their dreams will have to keep.
How many never have a chance?
Tonight, let this one sleep.
A child is filled with wonder.
Let this one's dreams be blessed.
Don't ever let her wonder
If god might love her less.
She mustn't know what we know
She mustn't be so wise.
There's time enough for her to see
Just let her be a child
She's still so small. She'll never understand
How people fail and lives break down
And don't turn out
The way you planned
For now save her the sorrow
For now save her the tears
Save grief for somewhere years away just not today; not here.
For now let her be lucky
For now look down in grace
Give her time to learn compassion
Give her time to learn forgiveness
Help me find the strength to give this gift to her
Only let her be a child
Let her be a child
Just let her be a child for now.
