Yes, He Does!

God wants me for his child. Yes, He does!
He loves me as His own. Yes, He does!
He wants what’s best for me. Yes, He does!
He provides all I need. Yes, He does!

God does such wondrous things. Yes, He does!
He gives me light and life. Yes, He does!
He gives me air to breathe. Yes, He does!
He gives me sleep at night. Yes, He does!

God forgives all my sins. Yes, He does!
He soothes my hurting heart. Yes, He does!
He finds me when I’m lost. Yes, He does!
He lifts me when I fall. Yes, He does!

God wants me for his child. Yes, He does!
He loves me as His own. Yes, He does!
He wants what’s best for me. Yes, He does!
He provides all I need. Yes, He does!

About This Song:
I wrote this song in 2011 for one of the children’s choirs at church. Unfortunately, it turned out to be too complicated for them. (It has some clapping at places that keep the singers on their toes.) Nonetheless, it expresses things (the best I can) from a child’s point of view.

Far too often, we adults overlook the significance of being a child of God. Just as we tend to place a greater emphasis on earthly life than we do on eternal life after earthly death.

I’m adopted. The couple I consider my parents brought me home from the hospital–just as if I had been born to them. My daughter is adopted, too. Even though we didn’t get her until she was five months old, once she became ours, we became the only parents she knew.

I loved my parents, but they’re both dead now–and living with our Heavenly Father. How much better to focus on my sonship with God than on my sonship with them. As His adopted son, I’ve come under the watchcare of the strongest, most powerful–yet most loving–power in the universe. He knows every detail of my life–past and present. He not only knows the hairs of my head, He knows where each one I’ve lost over the years has ended up.

Like any normal human parent, God wants what’s best for me. Unlike even the best of earthly parents, though, He’s able to provide it.

Yet He knows better than anyone else–even me–what’s good for me and what isn’t. He gives me everything I need and more, yet He never spoils me with things that would hurt me or come between Him and me.

I could go on, but you understand what I mean. The song says it all.
