He has given me these hands, formed in the image of his own
He has given me these eyes to see the path of truth that leads me home
And he has given me this voice, and hears each quiet prayer I speak
He has given me this heart to feel the unspoken answers that I seek

Created in his image, nurtured in his care
Sent to earth to learn the noble heritage I bear
Created in his image, his light will be my guide
A heavenly inheritance because I am his child

Hands like his to freely give; hands to make some burden light
Eyes like his to know another's need, as I learn to see with heaven's sight
My voice, like his, may offer hope or bid some tempest, "Peace, be still."
And my heart, like his, can share his perfect love, as my life reflects my Father's will

Created in his image, nurtured in his care
Sent to earth to learn the noble heritage I bear
Created in his image, his light will be my guide
A heavenly inheritance because I am his child
