Lyrics

Child you’re trying to find a way
To get yourself through this mess
On your own
But I never made your arms to carry
Such a heavy load

And you got walls built around your heart But they are walls built to fall
When the storms come
To lift your eyes up off the ground
And look to me again

Know my plans won’t fail
Though weeping comes at night
My joy will give you strength in the morning

Oh when the breakers crash down
Oh when your life hits the sand
Oh look around, look around
I will be close at hand
Oh I will be close at hand

Sometimes the darkness gets so deep You can feel it in your lungs
And it’s hard to breathe
But I will roll away the stone
And the let the sun shine in
Oh I’m calling out your name

Know my plans won’t fail
Though weeping comes at night
My joy will give you strength in the morning

Oh when the breakers crash down
Oh when your life hits the sand
Oh look around, look around
I will be close at hand
Oh I will be close at hand

I’m calling out your name
Yeah child I’m calling out your name
I’m calling out your name
I’m calling out your name
‘Cause I want you to know

My plans won’t fail
Though weeping comes at night
My joy will give you strength in the morning

Oh when the breakers crash down
Oh when your life hits the sand
Oh look around, look around
I will be close at hand

Oh when the breakers crash down
Oh when your life hits the sand
Oh look around, look around
I will be close at hand
Oh I will be close at hand
Yes, I will be close at hand
