Subject: Re: Child of God
The song Patricia Kuhlman quoted is especially great when sung by
Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young.
In the 50's, an LDS children's song was published called
"I Am a Child of God." It applies to everyone in that God is the
Father of the human family. Additionally, it suggests that our
connection with Him began before birth. Every verse begins with
the line, "I am a child of God." The first verse follows:
I am a child of God;
and he has sent me here.
Has given me an earthly home
With parents kind and dear.
The recent discussion of the term child of god in religious context
brought to mind a more secular usage in Joni Mitchell's song,
I came upon a child of God
He was walking along the road
And I asked him, where are you going
And this he told me
I'm going down to Yasgur's farm
I'm going to join in a rock 'n' roll band
I'm going to camp out on the land
And try an' get my soul free
We are stardust
We are golden
And we've got to get ourselves
Back to the garden
Which garden is that song refering to?
