I tend to think of “Dearest Children, God is Near You” as a child’s song.  At times I am not mindful that these words are for me, God’s child.

You are His child too – cherished and loved beyond your deepest yearning or imagination.

The words are simple enough for a child to understand and clear and plain in meaning for those with ears to hear.


Dearest children, God is near you, Watching o’er you day and night,
And delights to own and bless you, If you strive to do what’s right.
He will bless you, He will bless you, If you put your trust in him


Dearest children, holy angels Watch your actions night and day,
And they keep a faithful record Of the good and bad you say.
Cherish virtue! Cherish virtue! God will bless the pure in heart. 


Children, God delights to teach you By his Holy Spirit’s voice.
Quickly heed its holy promptings. Day by day you’ll then rejoice.
Oh, prove faithful, Oh, prove faithful To your God and Zion’s cause.

Feel the Spirit warm your heart and soul as you listen to one verse of “Dearest Children, God is Near You”.

And know that you are His precious child.

Jesus Children-16

Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed. Delight thyself also in the LORD; and He shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in Him; and He shall bring it to pass. Psalm 37:3-5
