Unless you become like a child
you will not see the Kingdom of Heaven;
to become as one humble and mild
you cannot have pride to be leavened.
A young child is perfectly honest
and tells the truth just as it is;
unpretentious and shamelessly modest,
not afraid to admit wrong as his.
Be yourself when you’re talking to God;
Fathers see through false faces and lies.
He’s can see that you’re helpless and flawed,
understanding just hearing your sighs.
Like a child you must live in the Now,
unconcerned with the future or past;
don’t be worried and troubled by how,
this one moment is precious and vast.
Be submissive and keen to assist,
pleasing God is the first thing to do;
as a child make this why you exist,
seek His favor all the day through.
A child has no prejudiced thoughts,
doesn’t know how to hate and divide;
such dark things are not Heavenly taught,
to a child we all can abide.
In order to be like a child,
you must die and then be born again;
in this state you are so unbeguiled,
now in Christ you are in God’s domain.
Be like Jesus and perfectly trust
everything that the Father says do;
in all things He is flawless and just,
seeking only that you come Home, too.
