1. heavenly father, are you really there?
and do you hear and answer ev’ry child’s prayer?
some say that heaven is far away,
but i feel it close around me as i pray.
heavenly father, i remember now
something that jesus told disciples long ago:
“suffer the children to come to me.”
father, in prayer i’m coming now to thee.
2. pray, he is there;
speak, he is list’ning.
you are his child;
his love now surrounds you.
he hears your prayer;
he loves the children.
of such is the kingdom, the kingdom of heav’n.
