WHEN I WAS A CHILD

by Larry Nickel

LYRICS

When I was a child, I spoke like a child
I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child.
Now that I have grown, I’ve put my childish way behind.

In the same way, we see and try to understand
the things of God, not known to mortal man.
Like gazing on reflections in a mirror,
now we see dimly – a poor reflection.

May Your unfailing love rest upon us, O Lord –
even as we put our faith in You.

When I was a child, I spoke like a child
I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child.
Now that I have grown, I’ve left my childish way behind.

Then comes the day we meet our Maker face to face,
the things of earth will surely fade away.
Then we shall know – even as we are known.
We will behold Him – our great Creator.

May Your unfailing love rest upon us, O Lord –
even as we put our hope in You.

1 Corinthians 13:11-12; Psalm 33:22.
