A Blessing of Babies

Children in your embrace

Fill an empty spot down low

You get used to how beautiful they are

And how you never want to let go.

~ ~ ~

You love them so much

You beg them to grow right

Worry and fret over every little thing

Eyes pop open in the middle of the night.

~ ~ ~

With Jesus by your side

Full circle is just a hug and a sing

For as you snuggle the baby close

You realize one important thing.

~ ~ ~

That you are a child still in His arms; and He will~

Sing lullabies in your ears

Hold you till you never let go of His love.

And comfort all your fears.
