This song was written for my oldest daughter on May 20, 1979 for her dedication service at the Dallas Temple Corps of The Salvation Army. As a first-time father, I was in awe of the gift God had given to Kathie and me. My response we to express my adoration to my Heavenly Father as we dedicated Melissa's life back to Him. "We thank you our Lord, we adore Thee".
This song is easily adapted to be used for a son by simply changing the female pronouns to their male counterparts.
