​First Day On Earth

This song is by NewSong and appears on the album Give Yourself Away (2009).

It's your first day on earth
A long awaited surprise
We all agree you're beautiful
And that you've got your mother's eyes

And there's so much to tell you
I don't know where to start
You're so innocent and perfect
But this world we live in is not

But don't you worry about a thing now, child
God is watchin' over us
So close your eyes and go to sleep
It's your first day on earth

It's your first day on earth
I bet you're wonderin' who I am
It feels like God Himself brought you to us
I'm holdin' heaven in my hands

And there's so much to tell you
I don't know where to start
You're so innocent and perfect
But this world we live in is not

But don't you worry about a thing now, child
God is watchin' over us
So close your eyes and go to sleep
It's your first day on earth
Close your eyes and go to sleep
It's your first day on earth

I'd build a castle for you
To protect you from all harm
If I thought that it would keep you safe
You'd never leave my arms

But I know that there's a life for you
That'll take you far from me
And the love of God will keep you
So don't you worry 'bout a thing

It's your first day on earth
Gonna start prayin' today
That God'll send His perfect one
To steal your heart away

'Cause I know that day is comin'
When you'll kiss us all goodbye
You'll pack up all your favorite things
And start a brand a new life

I know it's silly to say I'm a little sad today
You won't always be with us
But that's a million years from now
And it's your first day on earth
But that's a million years from now
And it's your first day on earth
It's your first day on earth
