My Child ~ recorded 1949

< Instrumental Opening >
 
Some men search the earth for its treasure,
Then glory and wealth they’ve compiled
But I find the treasure I’m seeking
When I look in the face of my child


My place in the world is a small one
The winds of my life have blown wild
And yet I still find I’m a hero
In the wise little eyes of my child

The first time that he called me “daddy”
Oh what a thrill to here him call me “daddy”!
I held him close without speaking
I held the happiness I’ve been seeking

The doorway of heaven flew open
For me from the moment he smiled
For I found the secret of living
I found this in the kiss of my child.

< Instrumental Break >

For I found the secret of living
I found this in the kiss of my child.
