Protect You

Do you know how much

I want to protect you

Keep you safe all the time

Protect you from all the bad things in the world

Crime, slime and grime


I want to baby proof your whole life

Protect you from hurt, pain and strife


I want to catch you every time you fall

Be there whenever you call


Fly to your rescue like superman

Wish I had superpowers

So I can

Use these powers to keep you safe

Protect you from this wicked place


I wish this world you were born in

Wasn’t so evil, tainted by sin


I wish this Earth was like heaven for you

Because you are my heaven on Earth, my dream come true

More than all Earthly wealth to me you are worth

I loved you, even before your birth


I prayed for you

While you were inside of me

Growing and waiting

Until out in the world you could finally be


Now I wish I could protect you

Hide these evil things from you


Cover your eyes and ears

Ease your fears

Wish you could always be this innocent kid

Oblivious to what Satan and his followers did


But I see

The super hero can’t be me

I am only human

Limited in power and fragile as can be

My protection power comes in the form of prayer

Trusting our God, our Protector

To be our dragon slayer


His Word:

So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Isaiah 41:10 NIV
