Song background:

This song was written to go along with the 2018 primary theme "I Am a Child of God."  The initial idea for it came as I was sitting in the LDS General Women's meeting in September 2017. Sister Marriott said, "We need to continually deepen our knowledge of and obedience to Heavenly Father," and parts of the chorus came to me at that time. The first verse/chorus are all questions, and the 2nd verse/chorus are the answers to those questions. This song teaches about the purpose of life and how we are children of our Heavenly Father.

Lyrics: Do you know why you're here on this beautiful earth?
Do you know the degree of your infinite worth?
Do you know that there's a plan for you?
Do you feel true joy in the things you do?

Do you know your Father in Heaven above?
Do you know the wonder of His endless love?
Do you know He watches over you each day?
Do you know He wants you to follow His way?

We were sent here to earth to learn and to grow,
Father gave us His Son to bring us back home.
I will trust His plan and always be true,
It will bring me joy in the things I do.

Yes I know my Father in Heaven above.
I have felt the wonder of His endless love.
And I know He watches over me each day,
I will turn to Him and follow His way.

I may not know it all but I know enough,
I am a child of my Father above.
