Can anyone help with this song i heard somewhere, all the words I have are.

I want to be a child again, Iwant to see the world through five year old eyes, To walk with my Lord wherever he may lead.

I have to go of for tonight so I will thank you for any help in advance.

I didn't find anything more. I'll ask Whizzy to look in; she may know it.

Can't help, but I'll share one of my favorite comments I heard from a friend of mine... "You're only young once, but you can be immature forever."

I found that a copy of the cassette titled "I Want to Be a Child Again" by Jenny Ellis is being offered for sale on eBay, and they showed an image of the label. From that I confirmed that the song title is I WANT TO BE A CHILD AGAIN and the songwriter credited there is Diane Davis Andrew (Celebration Services International Ltd.).

I believe this is the songwriter's web site. There is information there about other songs and albums, but not this one.

However, I did find these lyrics in someone else's blog:


I WANT TO BE A CHILD AGAIN
Copyright 1975 Celebration
Diane Davis Andrew

CHORUS: I want to be a child again;
I want to see the world
Through five-year-old eyes;
To walk with my Lord
Wherever He may lead,
To put my trust in Him.

1. Make me a child, O Lord,
Make my song joy,
My heart free,
My life a dance,
A dance of praise to you.

2. We must become as children,
Simple and trusting of heart,
To enter you kingdom, Lord,
To rest in peace with you.

The spacing is almost impossible to do to get the chord position right in this format. I might record this on youtube at some point.
