Kendall's Song

6.12.2012



Some things to note about this video:

1. This was Kendall's first time playing her song for ANYBODY. I only heard it for the first time the morning this was filmed, and that was through her bedroom door because girlfriend was belting it out. The only reason I convinced her to play it later that afternoon was because her Grandma was leaving the next day on her summer-long hiking trip and I knew she would like to hear it at her going-away barbecue. Good thing Kendall was facing the wall in my parents living room or she would have seen the 20 or so people who ended up crowding in to listen!
2. She wrote the words and came up with the simple chords all on her own.
3. When she played it I totally cried and my heart just swelled. Not because I think she is this amazing singer or musician or anything (although I was kinda impressed), but because she wrote a worship song! Kendall loves the Lord and I love and am thankful for her tender heart!

Here are the words.

I am His child
By Kendall Halverson
(June 2012, age 10 ¾)

Verse One
Living life in darkness but He pulls us through
God is leading and I’ll follow too
Living life through Him, it’s what we do
He is salvation, my heart’s in Him
 Chorus
God is my healer, God is my guidance
God is love and I’m His child
Angel wings and voices sing
Heavenly praise and God above
I’m His Holy child
I’m His holy child
Verse Two
Suns still shining, God is near
The stars are His creation, we’ll praise His name
His promise a rainbow, God is with us
It is clear, God is here
Bridge
I am His child, we are His children
Living together, He is our father (x2)
