As a child, mama told me all about You
And all the things You've done
I wondered all these years how You kept goin'
And had the strength to carry on
She said You'd always be beside me
To help me up if I should fall
If I get lost You'll always find me
And all I have to do is call
When Moses cried for help to free his people
You opened up the mighty sea
When David said, "He sure looks big, Lord!", You said,
"Here's a stone and you've got Me!"
And when Daniel said, "The lions are gonna get me Lord!" You said,
"Get down, get down on your knees."
And in six short days You made the world we live in,
And still You find the time for me.
Oh, You stayed up forty days and forty nights
Makin' all that rain
And when You see us messin' up this world You love so much
That's gotta bring pain
If I was big enough, and strong enough to help you, Lord, I would
But I can't
You gotta be tired, Lord
You gotta be tired
