As I watch you sleeping
As I watch you sleeping I see the innocence in each breath
The trust, the security in each movement of your chest.
As I watch you sleeping I remember the first time our eyes met,
Your soul staring me in the face as holding you I wept.
As I watch you sleeping I pray the Lord is drawing you
Unto himself even now that he may get Glory in all you do.
As I watch you sleeping, I want to keep you safe
I want to heal all the hurts and all the pain in life that you will face.
As I watch you sleeping, I pray that God will make
Me the mom I need to be and example of his face.
As I watch you sleeping, I wish for you to know
How God loved you so much his son he did bestow.
As I watch you sleeping, I know that God will lead
As we honor him in raising you and over your heart plead.
As I watch you sleeping, I wonder what you will become
Fighting fires or changing tires or bringing Souls to the One.
As I watch you sleeping, I trust in God’s sovereign plan
He knows every hair on your head and He will get Glory from all man
As I watch you sleeping and your eyes blinking with dreams,
I am awestruck at your Perfection and My soul through my eyes beam.
As I watch you sleeping I know the years are passing by
Soon you will mature and grow and we will be seperated by miles.
So as time allows in my heart each cherished memory I am keeping,
And remember every hope-filled thought and prayer while you were sleeping.
