taking a child by the hand lyrics – nana mouskouri

taking a child by the hand
teaching him just how to stand
so he’ll accept what tomorrow may bring
taking a child for a king

taking a child in your arms
and as you feel your heart sing
drying his tears as you’re letting him cling
taking a child for a king

taking a child to your heart
soothing away his distress
softly in silence to soothe and caress
taking a child to your heart

taking a child in your arms
and as you feel your heart sing
tears start to fall as you’re letting him cling
taking a child for a king

taking a child by the hand
singing him nursery rhymes
so that he’ll sleep at the end of the day
singing his troubles away

taking a child to your breast
soothing away his unrest
and looking on to the future you’ve planned
taking a child by the hand

years on your own, now no longer alone
taking a child for your own
