A NOTE FROM NATHAN:

"Like A Child Again" is based entirely on Bob Hardeman's
testimony. In his testimony Bob stated how
he had departed from living for the Lord and how his faith
had diminished in the process. Bob stated that after
many years of not living right, he felt an urgent
need to seek the Lord once again. The result was
Bob on his knees in a bedroom praying for the restoration
of his faith. He reported that this was acomplished
by the grace of the Lord and that in fact
his faith was ten times stronger than before.

It is a testimony that I also share and feel that
the message in the song is important to many that have
departed from the paths of the Lord. If Bob and I can
renew our faith and live for Christ, then anyone should be
able to do the same. I miss Bob, he was a wonderful
friend and a true non-judgemental Christian man.
He has moved on to his heavenly home but his
testimony lives on through the song I wrote about it.
Let's remember Bob with his words
"If God restored my faith, He can do the same for you."

I miss you Bob. Say Hi to my Dad and tell him
I will see you both in God's good time.

Your friend always,

Nathan.






LIKE A CHILD AGAIN
(BOB'S TESTIMONY)



Lord, you know I was saved in my youth years ago,
My faith was so strong then, and I loved You so,

And you know, as time passed, Lord, I drifted away,
Let me feel once again what I felt in those days.






Oh Lord, hear my prayer, honor this request for me,
Mend my broken heart while I'm down on my knees

I've forsaken my first love, let me feel what I felt then,
Oh Lord, give me faith like a child again.






My Lord is quick and just to forgive we are told.
He restored my faith and it has increased ten-fold.

If you've drifted from God, there's something you can do
If God restored my faith, He can do the same for you!






Oh Lord, hear my prayer, honor this request for me,
Mend my broken heart while I'm down on my knees

I've forsaken my first love, let me feel what I felt then,
Oh Lord, give me faith like a child again.






Oh Lord, hear my prayer, honor this request for me,
Mend my broken heart while I'm down on my knees

I've forsaken my first love, let me feel what I felt then,
Oh Lord, give me faith like a child again.


Oh Lord, give me faith like a child again.
