As I watched you from a distance, I can’t help but have a smile.
Remembering once to hold you, even though a short while.
I know Lord I have given, everything to thee.
This man that was a child, with no name you took from me.
Lord heal my heart, for the tears I cannot hold.
I believe my father’s father and the promise that you hold.
A covenant that keeps me warm in the darkness of the night.
Make my Moses be lord a true guiding light.
For your love is like an anchor that holds me close to shore.
So the tides cannot move me from the love you have in store.
I cry at night, I cry at night.
So my Moses will never see.
I cry at night, I cry at night,
So my Moses will never see the tears from me.
I remember the waters and the gift they brought to me.
You have grown into a great man this I see in thee.
I know your heart is heavy with questions deep inside.
I pray your God will guild you through the things that will divide.
Soon the time will come young man
A path that you will take young man
A vision you will see young man
Will lead you to the truth young man
So be strong young man
Give your heart to God young man
I will miss you dearly my young man, my young man.
