Stay — An Orphan Song by Brian Doerksen

An original song by Brian Doerksen expresses appreciation from an orphan’s point of view:

Will you hold me in Your arms
As I rest on Your knee, won’t You tell me my favorite story
I was an orphan, You adopted me

As I listen to Your voice the blessing surrounds me
I know I’m Yours, I’m so glad You found me
I was an orphan, You adopted me

Wrap your strong arms around me
This is my peace
Father, stay close by me
Stay

As I look in Your eyes I see such kindness
Nothing in the world is anything like this
I was an orphan, You adopted me

Wrap your strong arms around me
This is my peace
Father, stay close by me

Wrap your strong arms around me
This is my peace
Father, stay close by me
Stay
