A Gift From God

I knew that I would love you,
Just didn't know how much;
'Till I held you in my arms,
So soft and gentle to the touch.

What a beautiful baby,
You've turned out to be;
Everyone loves you,
Especially me.

God gave you to us,
To care for and to love;
I promise you, baby,
As God in heaven above.

I will do my part,
to teach you His way;
To bring you up properly,
So that people might say....

"What a nice young person,
Your parents were given;
So polite and kind-hearted,
A wonderful gift from God in His heaven."

And when you are old,
And look back over the years;
I pray you've had more laughter,
Than you have had tears.

God bless you, my child,
As you travel the road.
May He go with you,
To help carry the load.
