My son, my son, why are you striving
You canít add one thing to whatís been done for you
I did it all while I was dying
Rest in your faith, my peace will come to you

For when I hear the praises start
I want to rain upon you
Blessings that will fill your heart
I see no stain upon you
Because you are my child and know me
To me youíre only holy
Nothing that youíve done remains
Only what you do for me

My child, my child, why are you weeping
You will not have to wait forever
That day and that hour is in my keeping
The day Iíll bring you into heaven

For when I hear the praises start
My child, I want to rain upon you
Blessing that will fill your heart
I see no stain upon you
Because you are my child and you know me
To me youíre only holy
Nothing that youíve done remains
Only what you do in me

My precious bride, the day is nearing
When Iíll take you in my arms and hold you
I know there are so many things that youíve been hearing
But you just hold on to what I have told you

For when I hear the praises start
My bride, I want to rain upon you
Blessings that will fill your heart
I see no stain upon you
Because you are my child, and you know me
To me youíre only holy
Nothing that youíve done will remain
Only what you do for me
