Warrior Is A Child by Gary Valenciano was originally composed and sung in 1984 by Twila Paris.
Here in the Philippines however, it was popularized by Gary Valenciano
What I love the most with this song is that I can relate with myself with this. As a young church minister, I look at myself as a warrior of the Lord.
Yes, there has been many victories but behind that, there are also lots of defeats and hurts. Just like what has been said in the lyrics, people don’t know it because we can’t just tell it to people. What they don’t know is that the warrior is a child.
Sometimes, I feel myself to be alone especially in my saddest moments in battles and I only have one strength left, that is the one that coming from our Lord.
