He's My Son

My heart resonates with this song even though I know it is meant for a child who is physically ill. I believe that it is just as poignant for a child who struggles with emotional or spiritual illness, and it is my heart’s cry…

He’s My Son by Mark Schultz

I'm down on my knees again tonight
I'm hoping this prayer will turn out right
See there is a boy that needs Your help
I've done all that I can do myself
His mother is tired
I'm sure You can understand
Each night as he sleeps
She goes in to hold his hand
And she tries not to cry
As the tears fill her eyes

Can You hear me?
Am I getting through tonight?
Can You see him?
Can You make him feel all right?
If You can hear me
Let me take his place somehow
See, he's not just anyone
He's my son

Sometimes late at night I watch him sleep
I dream of the boy he'd like to be
I try to be strong and see him through
But God who he needs right now is You
Let him grow old
Live life without this fear
What would I be
Living without him here
He's so tired and he's scared
Let him know that You're there


Can You hear me?
Can You see him?
Please don't leave him
He's my son

Wow, the words of that song are just how I feel about my baby. I have never heard it and now am going to have to try to find it so I can hear it to music. Thank you for sharing.

I have heard that song before. Very powerful words!!!

Thanks for your words for me. I really appreciate it. It is difficult, but God makes miracles out of bad situations too, and I really believe that with all my heart!
