My Brothers And Sisters

I lifted him up to the ceiling

His delight was mine

A father and his son

Our living days entwine

Now that child looks after me

Brings children of his own

Grandsons I can play with

Never left alone

 

I will not leave you orphans

The promise of the Lord

The Spirit I will send to you

Faithful to his word

And little ones will understand

Mysteries so deep

The wisdom of the world is theirs

Safely now they sleep

 

So many people in this world

Find themselves alone

Orphaned by some tragedy

Foundlings with no home

So the Lord creates his family

And we are all his kin

I lift you to the ceiling

You are welcome come on in
