He’s My Son

I’m down on my knees again tonight
I’m hoping this prayer will turn out right
See there is a boy that needs your help
I’ve done all that I can do myself
His mother is tired, I’m sure you can understand
Each night he sleeps, she goes in to hold his hand
And she tries not to cry as the tears fill her eyes

Chorus:
Can you hear me? Am I getting through tonight?
Can you see him? Can you make him feel alright?
If you can hear me, let me take his place somehow
See he’s not just anyone, he’s my son

Sometimes late at night I watch him sleep
I dream of the boy he’d like to be
I try to be strong and see him through
But God who he needs right now is you
Let him grow old, live life without this fear
What would I be, living without him here
He’s so tired and he’s scared
Let him know that you’re there

(Chorus)
Can you hear me?
Can you see him?
Please don’t leave him
He’s my son
