I took this on not knowing, Gods plan, I couldn’t see, I only know you needed help, So he gave the reigns to me!
I made a solemn vow that day, You’d never feel alone, I’ll walk with you each step you take, Till Jesus calls you home!
He answered many prayers that day, When he placed you in my care, He gave me strength to carry you, Through all you’d have to bear!
He also gave me patience, To care for you when ill, I learned to walk in faith with him, To carry out his will!
I won’t leave you or forsake you, God always kept his word, For in my darkest hours, His voice was all I heard!
It wasn’t till I trusted him, I began to understand, That I was not alone in this, God held me in his hands!
Each day held different struggles, Which were blessings from above, He gave us time to reaffirm, Our mother-daughter love! The time that I have spent with you, Is worth its weight in gold, The memories that I get to keep, To cherish and to hold!
I see the end is nearing, I know I’ve done my best, Its time to hand the reigns to God, And let him do the rest!
So now he has the reigns back, He looks down on me and smiles, I hear him say down in my heart, “I’m proud of you my child”!
“Although you’ve had your trials”, “You’ve carried out your task”, “You’ve shown to me obedience”, “By doing what I’ve asked”!
“And in return, You’ll reap rewards”, “For all that you have done”, “I did all this to let you know” “You were the chosen one”!
