C                                            F                                        C

I WAS THERE WHEN YOU DREW THE BREATH OF LIFE

                        Em

AND I COULD HEAR YOUR VOICE

          F                                     G

THE FIRST TIME THAT YOU CRIED

          C                                                          Em              F

AND THOUGH YOU COULDN’T SEE ME, I WAS VERY NEAR

AND THERE’S SOMETHING NOW THAT I WANT YOU TO HEAR

 

            CHORUS:

                                  C                  F                       C

YOU WILL ALWAYS BE A CHILD IN MY EYES

                                          Em

AND WHEN YOU NEED SOME LOVE

                    F                            G

MY ARMS ARE OPEN WIDE

                      C

AND EVEN WHEN YOU’RE GROWING OLD

                Em                   F

I HOPE YOU REALIZE

                                  C                 G                      C

YOU WILL ALWAYS BE A CHILD IN MY EYES

I WAS THERE THE FIRST TIME THAT YOU PRAYED

           Em                         F                          G

AND I HEARD ALL THE PROMISES YOU MADE

           C

AND WHEN YOU FELL BEFOR ME

                 Em                       F

CRYING, “FATHER I HAVE SINNED”

   C                                 G                                 C – G

I PICKED YOU UP AND HELD YOU CLOSE AGAIN

                    (REPEAT CHORUS)

  1. What a beautiful inspirational song by Ray Boltz. I remember those years when you hear his songs played over and over again on the radio and also sung by music bands at church.

    Today, Hillsong Worship is obviously the most popular Australian worship band. And if there’s one particular song I would like to lead is the song, “What a beautiful name.” It’s admittedly one of their best worship songs. I even learned the guitar chords of this song so that I can lead this song on the next Christmas concert.

    Let us keep singing for the Lord!

    1. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. Despite the controversies about Ray Boltz, I still think that his songs are amazing. Well, I like Hillsong music too, even though there have been a lot of controversies about them as well. I just hope that Christian music bands will continue to create music that are pleasing to God and conduct concerts to draw people to Christ and not to themselves.
