May God Keep You
If I could pray your tears away
Arms hold you close while you cry
If I could make for you the brightest sunshine
Send comfort for your sigh.
If I could blow the clouds clear away,
Then you would ne'er be cold,
If I could find the softest touch so true
Cherub sweet, for you to hold.
If I could sweep away all your lurking fear
For faith to bloom within your heart
Then you could know abounding joy
While walking on life's path.
If I could fill your nights with peace
And bless your life with enduring love,
Tenderness would rain down upon you
From the heavens above.
If I could take away your sorrow
and put hope within your day,
That means God would be inside your heart
Where He will ever stay.
