A child, a gift from God above,

A child, to care for and to love,

Her days on earth have just begun,

Like morning dew and rising sun.


Oh Lord, I give this child to Thee,

Her steps and life to oversee,

To guide and watch, and to her show,

The many blessings You bestow.


Grant her Your wisdom from above,

Show her Your mercy and great love,

But most of all I ask of Thee,

Show her the Cross of Calvary.


Open her heart while she’s still small,

To hear the beckon of Your call,

And when her 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 her days on earth are told,

I pray Your face she will behold.

    Absolutely beautiful! There is a song called a mothers prayer that I danced with the son that is due to have a baby girl at his wedding in the middle of the song her mom got up up with her -the bride- and came out on the floor-and we prayed the prayer together that is in the middle of the song and we handed each of our children over ❤️ The Holy Spirit planted that on my heart to do 👍🏻
