Lyrics

I'll Take It From Here
(Bob McCormick/Janice Gilbert/Bill Flowerree/Dale Allen)

3:10 am I heard her very first cry
Sweet sound after 9 months of waiting
Couldn't hold back the tears as she laid by her mother's side
3:18 I'm holding God's creation
With her in my arms, I looked up and said

I'll take it from here
Do all that I can and promise she's in good hands
I'll take it from here
I know I'll need your help every now and then
God, you've brought us (her) this far, time to do my part on this end
I'll take it from here

5:10 PM I took her bags to the dorm
So excited after 18 years of waitin'
My little girl grown up but I pictured the day she was born
Time to go even though my heart was breakin'
With a tear and a smile she looked up and said

I'll take it from here
Do all that I can and promise I'll be good dad
I'll take it from here
I know I'll need your help every now and then
Dad, you've brought me this far, time to do my part on this end
I'll take it from here

I wondered, "What if she needs me and I'm not around?"
So I raised my hands and dropped my knees to the ground
Closed my eyes and I asked for God's help
And I swear I heard him say

I'll take it from here
Do all that I can and promise she's in good hands
I'll take it from here
I know she'll need your help every now and then
Son, I've never been far, I'll do my part 'til the end
I'll take it from here
