Abbakind-Marthie Nel Hauptfleisch-Woman On Fire

Liner Notes: 

This is adapted from a sermon about the Father who Abba's the child and what this means...


V1. I'm an abba-child on His back
hold me tight, feel his warmth,
everything that comes to him comes to me
I lay my ear against his back and listened to him breathe.

V2. I'm an abba-child on His back
Am I not worried, Get new strength,
I do not get tired, Do not feel tired.
I learn discipline to just sit still and wait.

V3. I'm an abba-child on His back
Even though I can not see in front of me, he is on the lookout,
Everything is okay with me, then I fall asleep.
because Dad carries me when the world gets dark.

Choir: Thank you Dad
I'm sitting here dead still because I know
You're in charge/ in control
see in the dark
is always awake
Thank you Dad
You carry my weight
And I climb every time
Back in the Abba skin of a Father
who loves His child very much

Bridge: I know this abba blanket you wrap me in
Did cost you Dad a lot of pain and suffering
I know this hide blanket you wrap me up with on your back
You had to pay for Dad without complaining.




V1. Ek’s ‘n abbakind op Sy rug
hou my styf vas, voel sy warmte,
als wat na hom toe kom, kom na my toe
Lê ek my oor teen sy se rug en luister hoe hy asemhaal.

V2. Ek’s ‘n abbakind op Sy rug
Is ek nie bekommerd nie, Kry nuwe krag,
Word ek nie moeg nie, Voel nie afgemat nie.
Leer ek dissipline om netso stil te sit en wag.

V3. Ek is ‘n abbakind op Sy rug
Al kan ek nie voor my sien nie, is hy die rigtingwyser,
gaan dit goed met my, dan raak ek aan die slaap.
omdat Pa my dra as die wêreld donker raak.

Koor: Dankie Pappa
Ek sit hier doodstil want ek weet
Jy’s in beheer
sien in die donker
is altyd wakker
Dankie Pappa
Jy dra my gewig
En ek klim elke keer
Terug in die Abba-vel van ‘n Vader
wat vir Sy kind baie lief is

Brug: Ek weet hierdie abba-velkaros
Het Pa baie pyn en leed gekos
Ek weet hierdie abba-velkaros
Moes Pa betaal sonder om te kla.


Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.
