LIE ON MY CHEST AGAIN

Written By: WAYNE MCBURNIE

Lie on my chest again

My son calls me to his room, to lay down with him, he lies on my chest,
He tells me about his day, the things he had done, at school and at play.
I feel his hair, feel the comfort there, I say...

Chorus:
Thank you Lord, for this gift of love. Most precious things, come from above.
I'm so glad that you gave him to me, This son I care for so tenderly.
If something came to tear us apart, I know we'd be connected by heart,
Then one day in my room above, he'd lie on my chest again.

"So Dad, why did God make me", he asks quietly, as he lies on my chest.
I tell him He made you for me, as his words start to tire, drifts off to sleep.
I feel his care, feel the closeness there, I say...

Chorus:
Thank you Lord, for this gift of love. Most precious things, come from above.
I'm so glad that you gave him to me, This son I care for so tenderly.
If something came to tear us apart, I know we'd be connected by heart,
Then one day in my room above, he'd lie on my chest again.

Bridge:
How you gave your only son, to the earth your only one.
The pain the hurt, I can't comprehend. Letting your son leave your chest,
No greater love could this attest, my Lord...

Chorus:
Thank you Lord, for this gift of love. Most precious things, come from above.
I'm so glad that you gave him for me, your Son you care for so tenderly.
If something came to tear us apart, I know we'd be connected by heart.
Then one day in your room above, I'd He on his chest again.

My son, you'd lie on my chest again.
Dear Lord, we'd lie on your chest again.
