There’s nothing in this world
that brings such happiness,
as that of a dear sweet child,
to hold, love, and caress.

As one comes into our family
there is no greater joy.
It matters not the gender,
baby girl or baby boy.

There’s nothing in this world
that brings such heartfelt sorrow,
as to have them in your life one day
and find them gone tomorrow.

At the loss of a little child
we must have faith, love, and trust
in God, our Heavenly Father,
who gave the child to us.

Love for the gift He gave us.
Trust in His wisdom divine,
and faith we’ll hold our child again
in a better place, at a better time.
