AUSTIN, Minn. — One singer/songwriter from Minnesota, who has never been a household name, may become one now after a video she posted to YouTube, of an original song she wrote, went viral.

Molly Kate Kestner posted the video of her, singing a song titled “His Daughter,” to YouTube just two weeks ago on Easter, and now the video has received over four million views.

On April 24 she posted this introduction to the song, along with the reason she held it privately in her possession for over a year, to her Facebook page. The post read:

Okay…So this is probably my favorite song I’ve ever written. I wrote it a year ago but I never posted it because I wanted to save it for my senior solo, but now that’s over…so I am FINALLY sharing it with the world. It’s called “His Daughter” and it is a story. So I hope you are inspired as I was when I wrote this, Happy Easter.

“This is a story…so listen,” reads the about section on the video’s post.

Here are the Lyrics to the song, “His Daughter”:

“’Everything’s gonna be alright.’
She whispers to herself.
She was only 6 years old that night.
As she hid behind that shelf.

Cause daddy had a little too much to drink.
And mama didn’t want her to feel the pain she felt.
But she still felt the pain…

Well 10 years they came and went,
and dad was gone.
So she looked for love in other men.
And tried to act strong.
Broken hearts and Scars in only places she could see.
Cause she just wanted, she just wanted to feel something.

And as she sat there on that bed,
thinking bout what those girls said,
tears streamed down her eyes.
She cried…

“If there’s a God out there
Please hear my prayer.
I’m lost and I’m scared,
and I’ve got nowhere else to go.

I’ve come a long, long way.
But I’m not sure I can make it much farther…
So if you’re listening, could you give a helping hand.
To your daughter.”

Well her path started to change.
She reached out and grabbed God’s grace.
And finally, she saw a light.
Until that night…

Where she decided one drink was alright,
and one thing led to another.
Next thing you know, 9 months go by,
she’s a mother.

And as she laid there in that bed.
Stroking that small angel’s head.
Tears streamed down her eyes.
She cried…

“If there’s a God out there.
Please hear my prayer.
I’m lost and I’m scared,
and I’ve got nowhere else to run.
I’ve come a long, long way.
But I’m not sure I can be the best mother…
So if you’re listening, could you give a helping hand.
To your daughter.”

Well that baby grew into a boy.
Who became her pride and joy.
He loved her like no man could.
And her heart felt peace, cause she finally understood.
God’s love.

And as she laid there in that bed,
99 years old.
She grabbed her son’s hand and said.
“There’s something you must know…”

“There is a God up there.
Who heard my prayer.
I was lost and afraid.
And I had nowhere else to go.
I had no clue, what to do
And then He sent me you.”

So if you’re lost and afraid,
and you feel so alone,
don’t worry child,
cause there’s a Father who will love you as His own.
Just like he loved his daughter.
Like he loved His daughter.”
