A MOTHER’S PRAYER

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.

John 3:6-7  That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.  Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
