The Way You Are ~ a song for a princess

The Way You Are (Princess)

By, Chelan Rene’ Russ

2/ ‘09

Dream, little one, of castles and kingdoms

Of sparkling crowns and colorful gowns


You’ll get on your horse and ride on the hills

You’ll follow a stream, and drift into sleep


Princess, you’re a princess

Splendor & grace (how they)

Dance in your face


Princess, you’re a princess

Near or far (you are)

Loved just the way…

You are


Your Daddy, the King will see just how far

You’ve wandered away to ponder and play


With servants and prayers, danger and love

He’ll rescue his daughter, right next to the water


(Chorus)

Loved just the way you are loved just the way you are loved just the way you are…

Inspirations:

“Captivating” by, John and Stasi Eldridge

Luke 15:22-24 ~ “But his father said to the servants, ‘Quick! Bring the finest robe in the house and put it on him. Get a ring for his finger and sandals for his feet. And kill the calf we have been fattening. We must celebrate with a feast, for this son of mine was dead and has now returned to life. He was lost, but now he is found.’ So the party began.

Jeremiah 50:6 ~ “My people have been lost sheep; their shepherds have led them astray and caused them to roam on the mountains. They wandered over mountain and hill and forgot their own resting place.

Jeremiah 31:3-4 ~ Long ago the Lord said to Israel:
“I have loved you, my people, with an everlasting love.With unfailing love I have drawn you to myself. I will rebuild you, my virgin Israel…”

    it’s not really complete yet…still have some kinks to work out so it’ll sync right w/the 3/4 timing. it’s too wordy…so i’ll be simplifying it too, but i sang it to her last night and i think she really liked it & she yawned twice, so that’s always a good sign. – thanks for your comments!
