Up to now I was never alone When may heart hurts inside me
Then my Daddy went to heaven His lap awaits my presence today
My heart broke because he was gone His arms wrap around me
Was a great loss at the age of eleven. And my tears he wipes away.
God stepped in and filled the gap When the world doesnít agree
I learned early He was my comfort I climb up for His advice and embrace.
And he had a great lap Because I know Heíll make me free
Iíd climb into for a cry and a nap. On his lap I find mercy and grace.
When I had a great pain Though in my sixties now
In His lap I would find a way. His lap is still large enough for me
Tears down my cheeks would rain Iím still his child and he knows how
As God soothed the pain each day. To sooth my pain and help me be.
