"Child" as written by and Portia Nelson....
You want to run, but you're too afraid to leave
You said you have faith, but not enough to believe

Back and forth, you go back and forth again
It wears you down, and it ties your hands

No more running
Search is over
Your salvation
Has brought you back to life

Child wipe your tears away
Cause Jesus cares for you
He knows you're hurting
And all you're going through
Won't you try just test your faith and see
You'll walk the oceans and believe
He's right there by your side
Oh child

Out of place is where you find yourself
Without a trace
You send an S.O.S. for help

No more running
Search is over
Your salvation
Has brought you back to life

Child wipe your tears away
Cause Jesus Cares for you
He knows you're hurting
And all you're going through
Won't you try just test your faith and see
You'll walk the oceans and believe
He's right there by your side
Oh child

Wipe your tears away
Cause Jesus Cares for you
