Song for my Son (for Mishka)

Today in church the Balogh family celebrated the dedication of little Mishka: Akos & Sarah declared that they would raise Mishka as a follower of Jesus, and we all prayed together that Mishka would grow up to put his personal trust in Jesus, never ceasing to hold on to what Jesus has done for him at the cross. As part of the dedication Sarah sung “Song for my Son”:

This is a song for Mishka for when he understands it
You know our lives are full, you know we couldn’t plan it
Your Dad and I pray for strength and understanding
For things we cannot see or comprehend

This is a song from my heart a small refrain to hold you
For times when we’re apart and I cannot console you
I can’t say your life will always go like it should
But I can say that God is always good

And when the cold wind blows like I know it will
And when you feel alone like I know you will
And when the cold wind blows like I know it will

Oh just hold on to, Mishka hold on to,
Oh just hold onto the cross

This is a song for Mishka for when he understands it
You know our lives are full, you know we couldn’t plan it
Your Dad and I pray for strength and understanding
For things we cannot see or comprehend

This is a song for you to carry in your pocket
Take all our love with you in all the paths you walk in
Love others as yourself and don’t forget to pray
And read your Bible every day

And when the cold wind blows like I know it will
And when you feel alone like I know you will
And when the cold wind blows like I know it will

Oh just hold on to, Mishka hold on to,
Oh just hold onto the cross
Oh just hold on to, Mishka hold on to,
Oh just hold onto the cross

This is a song for you
Oh, like my love for you

This is a song for Mishka for when he understands it
You know our lives are full, you know we couldn’t plan it
Your Dad and I pray for your strength and understanding
For things you cannot see or comprehend

Item performed by Sarah Balogh & Peter Yock. Words & Music by Sarah Groves.
