A child, a gift from God above,
A child, to care for and to love,
His days on earth have just begun,
Like morning dew and rising sun.
Oh Lord, I give this child to Thee,
His steps and life to oversee,
To guide and watch, and to him show,
The many blessings You bestow.
Grant him Your wisdom from above,
Show him Your mercy and great love,
But most of all I ask of Thee,
Show him the Cross of Calvary.
Open his heart while he’s still small,
To hear the beckon of Your call,
And when his earthly race is run,
To hear You say, “My child, well done”.
The Bible tells us of two births,
One from above, one of this earth,
When all his days on earth are told,
I pray Your face he will behold.
