lyrics

God’s Children
Aaron Niequist

Father of the beaten down
Lover of the strong and proud
God of every class, from the greenest grass to the underpass
You’re the Maker of us all

Father of each citizen
Lover of each immigrant
God of everyone who has ever been an alien
You’re Creator of us all
Animator of us all

Oh---You love your children, Love your children
Every daughter, every son
Oh---You love your children, All your children
Help us see You in each one

Father of the most oppressed
Lover of the least impressed
God of every kid who has ever hid from being hit
You’re the Seer of us all
Loving Weeper for us all

Oh---You love your children, Love your children
Every daughter, every son
Oh---You love your children, All your children
Help us see You in each one

And Jesus spoke, “Love your enemies and pray for those
who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in Heaven.
He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good,
and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous." (Matt 5:43-45)

You bring the rain down
On the good and bad, The good and bad
On all ------ Your children

And You make the Sun shine
On the good and bad, The good and bad
In all ------ Your children
