Father’s child

I am my Father’s child/
Whether I am tame or wild/
Whether I am strong or mild/
I am my Father’s child and He goes the extra mile//

He picked me from the sea of billions of faces and said “you”/
No matter how fast or slow your pace is- “you”/
No matter the back and forth, your pacing-“you”/
Regardless of your status, your payslip-“you”/
I choose you for salvation/
Between you and sin, a demarcation/
You are mine, my love, my dime/
Walk in, come and let us dine/
Because I choose you, for you I died//

So surrender/
Untether your ties from lies that bind/
And weather/
The storms of life beneath My wings, My feathers/
Together /
With Me soar high to heights unfettered/
Surrender/
I chose you for freedom give up your benders/
Surrender/
I am close, make Me your shelter/
Your dwelling place, your delta/
Your constant change, I bought you for more than chum change/
For whether/
You stumble or stand, I chose you/
Always My child, I bore you/
By a crimson tag/
Because from the day I breathed into your nostrils on my heart you tug/
So tag Me in/
Let me win for you/
Let me into you/
Unclench your fists /
Lay your heart at my
feet/
Knowing that in me there is no defeat//

I chose you/
Allow Me to use you/
And though I may sometimes bruise you/
The necessity reiterates that I choose you/
I choose you to display my glory.//
