I Love You, My Child

Music and Lyrics by Wendy Katagi


I wrote this song after hearing a message on Jonah.  I was so moved by the love of God...how it is impossible for me to truly love without first allowing God to love me first.  One of my favorite verses is from Matthew 6:33.  "Seek first the kingdom of God and all his righteousness. And all these things will be added unto you."  Another one that I have come back to time and time again is Proverbs 3:5 and 6.  "Trust in the Lord with all your heart.  Lean not on your own understanding.  In all your ways, acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight."  So, when I am feeling low or drained, I turn to God for strength.  Matthew 11: 28-30 "Come to me all who are weary and heavy laden and I will give you rest..."  I cried when I wrote this song.  After feeling so loved by God, I was able to say, "Everything is well with my soul."


I love you my child

Will you trust me with all your heart

Leaning on me, leaning on me

Will you seek me with all your heart

Turning to me, turning to me

Will you love me, with all your soul

Resting in me, resting in me

And I say,

I love you, oh my God

I trust you with all my heart

Leaning on you, leaning on you

I seek you with all my mind

Turning to you, turning to you, Lord

I love you with all my soul

Resting in you, resting in you

And God says,

I love you, I love you

I give you a clean heart and mind

I give you a new start

I give you all my rest

Because I love you

I love you

I love you
