Alathea Album: What Light Is All About Track: My Family
My Family Lyrics
I know we need each other like the trees need the rain Our Father brought us together to love in His name
CHORUS: I will thank my God every time I remember you I will praise Him constantly for my brothers, my sisters, my family You're my brothers, my sisters, my family
I know your love has shaped me like water in a gorge My Maker knew what I'd need and He gave me much more
Somehow your smile sustains me like the blood in my veins Your hands soften the blow of my private pain Somehow we can be foriven like the turn of a leaf His strength is made perfect when our spirits are weak
About this Song: Mandee wrote "My Family" last summer for a group of high school students who took us in, cared for us, and fed us when we felt like, "the least of these. . ." We're so thankful for the amazing support system that the Father provides us in the strangers that become our long, lost friends and in our friends that become our family and in our families that continues to make us rich in their love for us.
