Bring Him Safely Home to Me

Lyrics & Music by Joan Sowards

LYRICS

Please watch over my son,
Hold him ever in thy loving keep.
Though a shepherd he's still my lamb.
I'll trust in Thee, Thou Great, I AM to
Watch over him as he tends his father's sheep.

Yesterday, he was a boy,
But to face this task, a man he must be.
Turn his fear into confidence,
With conscience clear, and common sense.
Watch over him, bring him safely home to me.

I cannot walk with him each step of the way,
I cannot tell him all the words he should say.
So I will give him now to Thee.
Make of him the man he could be.

He has gone willingly, Please listen to his mother's plea;
Keep him warm in the cold of night,
Out from harm, and in Thy sight.
Watch over him, bring him safely home to me.
Please watch over my son.
And bring him safely home to me.
