lyrics

Child Of God
by Rachel Harrington

Out in back of my house
There down on the ground
He took hold of my hand
Did not make a sound

He pressed a fingertip
Up against my lips
He said it would not hurt
Started with a kiss

His hand up my skirt
Could not catch my breath
My knees began to shake
Scared me half to death

He took hold of my wrist
As if in a dream
My thoughts began to twist
In what he did to me

Am I not your child?
Am I not your little girl?
In this garden grown wild
In this Eden unfurled

Am I just your little plaything?
Am I just your little dog?
Just a servant of favor
Just a child of god

Out in back of my house
There down on the ground
He took hold of my hand
Did not make a sound

Just a girl of 8 years old
I didn’t know what to do
But I prayed Jesus did
And he would see me through

Am I not your child?
Am I not your little girl?
In this garden grown wild
In this Eden unfurled

Am I just your little plaything?
Am I just your little dog?
Just a servant of favor?
Just a child of god?
