Are we humble enough to want to be found by Jesus when we stray? Will we come home willingly and gratefully?
Are we humble enough to want to be tucked under His wing, so to speak, for protection?
Do we ask for His guidance, and figuratively reach up to take His hand to walk the path of life? Do we welcome correction? Have we put off the natural man and become “a saint through the atonement of Christ the Lord, and becometh as a child, submissive, meek, humble, patient, full of love, willing to submit to all things which the Lord seeth fit to inflict upon him, even as a child doth submit to his father”? (Mosiah 3:19)
It’s not so easy, sometimes. . . .
This song reminds us of how much we need our Savior. The beautiful music was composed by my sister Celia, who had my name for Christmas one year, so I begged her to write a tune for my lyric as my Christmas present. She did a lovely job. There are 8 children in our family, so she won’t have my name for 7 more years. 🙂

My sister, Celia, found images online and made this powerpoint to go with the music. She had a 10-year old boy sing the song for their Christmas breakfast at church, and it was well-received.
