Hold my hand

Hold my hand my child

I’ll help to guide your way.

I’ll teach you to laugh, to walk, to talk

I’ll even show you how to play.


Hold my hand and my child

I’ll lead you down the trail.

I’ll teach you to read, to write, to organise

To recover from times when you fail.


Hold my hand my child

I’ll walk by your side wherever you lead.

I’ll teach you to love, to respect to compromise

I’ll give you the guidance you need.


Hold my hand my child

I promise to never let you go.

The time has come for you to take another hand

To pass on all the wisdom you know.
