Little child stands near (A)
Lyrics
A LITTLE CHILD STANDS NEAR

Verse 1
One night he heard you singing
Of love and hope and joy
Drew near to see if you could want
Another little boy

Verse 2
To comfort you in times of fear
And to soothe your pain
But you cannot take his comfort
For you never knew he came

Verse 3
You never knew when angry
When your voice was shrill to hear
With your fury and frustration
That a little child stood near(chorus)

CHORUS
Now every time you feel your pain
Each time you shed a tear
Don't miss what really matters
For a little child stands near

Verse 4
Make no mistake, you drove him out
His love you did deny
Too full of selfish pitying
Yet still he is nearby

Verse 5
Why don't you see the joy you miss
He comes to show to you
Through you he looks out on the world
Should he be bitter too?(chorus)

CHORUS
Now every time you feel your pain
Each time you shed a tear
Don't miss what really matters
For a little child stands near

Verse 6
He needs to give his love to you
As much as you to him
So find yourself, and find your joy
And welcome him back in

CHORUS
Now every time you feel your pain
Each time you shed a tear
Don't miss what really matters
For a little child stands near

Description
Short Song Description:
Poem written by Patricia Mason found while reading Rosemary Altea's book "Proud Spirit"... seemed perfect for my album "Going Home". We should all live our lives as if in the presence of a 'small child'
