Have you held a newborn baby lately
In your arms so gentle and safe?
Have you heard the little sigh it makes
in the security of your embrace?
Have you smelled the precious baby
as you lean down to kiss its little face?
Did you feel its little stretch
as it snuggled in place?
A soul was brought into your world,
A soul which God placed in your care.
From the moment of its conception,
God knew the number of its hairs.
God has plans for each little soul
In His Holy Word we are told;
He chose you to love and nurture it
Directing it to the city of Gold.
Now it is your responsibility
to love and care for your own.
To nurture and direct it daily
to its final heavenly home.
Jesus said, “let the little children come unto Me”
in the Good book we are told.
You were chosen especially by God
for this blessing so great and bold.
So hold your newborn baby
in your arms so gentle and safe.
Listen to the little sigh it makes
in the security of your embrace.
Love your precious baby
God’s special gift to you.
Thank Him every day;
And to Him be forever true.
