Orphan Girl Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I am an orphan on God's highway
But I'll share my troubles if you go my way
I have no mother, no father
No sister, no brother

I am an orphan girl, I have had friendships
Pure and golden but the ties of kinship
I have not known them, I know no mother
No father no sister, no brother

I am an orphan girl but when He calls me
I will be able to meet my family
At God's table, I'll meet my mother
My father, my sister, my brother

No more an orphan girl, blessed Savior
Make me willing and walk beside me
Until I'm with them, be my mother
My father, my sister, my brother

I am an orphan girl, be my mother
My father, my sister, my brother
I am an orphan girl, I am an orphan girl

WELCH, GILLIAN HOWARD
