What Can I Give You?

Written by Christie Lund Coles

What can I give you, Child,

Against the intruding years?

What will keep each moment bright

To withstand the tears?


I can give you laughter…

It will not be enough—

I can give you courage

For when the road is rough.


I can give you words of faith

For when the night is long;

And for the songless moment,

I can give you song.


I can give you promise

Of guidance from above;

And always, always, always

I can give you love.
