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.
