Words & Music: Michael W. Smith and Brent Bourgeois

When I'm down when my soul's in need of rest
Come your words of comfort and of hope
I see your face always smiling back at me
A stream of light shining straight to the heart
Child of God, child of light
There'll be no more lonely nights
Cause you have brightened up my life

There's a road that leads me to this place
A path of love running straight to the heart

Over the years I've learned one important thing
It's that real friends shall never truly be apart
You were there in my darkest time of need
With a hand reaching straight to the heart

Child of God, child of light
There'll be no more lonely nights
Cause you have brightened up my life

Take this gift, it is all I have to give
A prayer of love forever straight to the heart
