Daddy's Little Girl

MY LORD, MY GOD IN HEAVEN ABOVE

RICH ARE YOUR MERCIES, YOUR GRACE AND YOUR LOVE
AND WHY HAVE YOU GIVEN, ME SUCH A GIFT I WONDER
FOR I AM WORTHY OF NOTHING, BUT TO BE CAST ASUNDER
AS I WATCH THIS CHILD GROW, FAR TO FAST IT SEEMS
I SEE THE SPARKLE IN HER EYES, I CAN SEE THEM GLEAM
AND HER WONDERFUL SMILE, HOW IT BRIGHTENS MY DAY
OR JUST HER SUBTLE GRIN, DRIVE THE CLOUDS AWAY
I LOVE TO HEAR HER LAUGHTER, RINGING IN MY EARS
JUST ONE DAY WITHOUT HER, SEEMS LIKE YEARS
AND HER HUGS AND KISSES, OR JUST TO HOLD HER HAND
WHEM I'M WEARY AND WORN, THEY STRENGTHEN ME TO STAND
SHE'S WORTH MORE TO ME, THAN ALL THE WORLDS TREASURE
MY LOVE FOR HER, NO MAN CAN MEASURE
WHEN I LOOK INTO HER EYES, SHE FILLS MY HEART WITH PRIDE
MY LORD I PROMISE, I'LL NEVER LEAVE HER SIDE
I’VE YET TO UNDERSTAND, NOR CAN I SAY WHY
SUCH A GIFT YOU HAVE GIVEN, TO SUCH A MAN AS I
BUT THIS ONE THING I KNOW, OF ONE THING I'M SURE
I WANT HER TO KNOW YOU LORD, YOUR LOVE SO PURE
I WANT TO LIVE MY LIFE, IN SUCH A WAY
THAT SHE MIGHT SEE JESUS, EACH AND EVERY DAY
THAT SHE MIGHT KNOW THAT YOU ARE GOD, AND YOU DESERVE OUR VERY BEST
MY LORD I DON'T KNOW, HOW I'LL EVER PASS THIS TEST
FOR WHEN THE DAY HAS ENDED, AND TOMORROW DRAWS NEAR
OFTEN MY LORD, I TREMBLE WITH FEAR
HAVE I LIVED BEFORE HER, THE WAY THAT I SHOULD
HAVE I SERVED YOU LORD, THE BEST THAT I COULD
IT'S MY HEART'S DESIRE LORD, THAT SHE KNOW YOUR LOVING FAVIOR
THAT SHE MIGHT KNOW YOU LORD, AS HER PRECIOUS SAVIOR
THE FAULTS AND THE FAILURES, THEY BELONG TO ME
HIDE MINE INQUITIES, THAT ONLY YOU SHE MIGHT SEE
WITHOUT YOU LORD, I WILL SURLEY FAIL
FOR YOU ARE THE CAPTAIN, OF THE VESSEL WE SAIL
MY LOVE FOR HER, IS AS VAST AS THE SEA
THANKYOU LORD, FOR THIS GIFT YOU'VE GIVEN ME
