lyrics

We sat and cried together
As you lay sleeping
Outside the snow fell fast while
Our hearts were breaking
Our little boy, so full of life
Must now begin to fight

At times like these, so frail and weak
When night seemed to prevail
Yet in the darkness, his voice we heard
"My child, I will not fail"

The pills and counts began as
Your “tubey” drank in
The medicine that helped you
Fight all the bad within
You faced it all, with smiles and tears
As God gave grace each day

You were so brave and fearless
As weak your body grew
Bald head and pudgy cheeks and
A thousand nuggets too
So many prayers, and helping hands
Gave strength to weary plans

At times like these, so frail and weak
When night seemed to prevail
Yet in the darkness, his voice we heard
"My child, I will not fail"

Your fevers came and went as
The ER visits loomed
Each month your week of steroids
Brought with it doom and gloom
Our crazy life, with all its cares
The perfect plan from His hand

And now this chapter closes
And we will sing his praise
The trial that we have walked through
A trophy of his grace
So my son, remember this
Our God never fails

We have a God that rules the world
What part has he not made?
So when your trials bring pain
My son, don't be afraid
For every tear and loss
Are held in Gods sure hand
Who entered to our world
of brokenness and pain
He has been faithful
He will be faithful again
