A Baby's Secret
I'm just a little fellow,
who didn't quite make it there.
I went straight to be with Jesus,
but I'm waiting for you here.
Don't you fret about me, Mommy.
I'm all of God's lambs most blessed,
I'd have loved to stay here with you,
but the shepherd know what's best.
Many dwelling here where I live
waited years to enter in,
Struggled through a world of sorrow
and their lives were filled with sin.
So sweet Mommy, don't you sorrow,
wipe those tears and chase the gloom.
I went straight to Jesus bosom
from my lovely Mothers' womb
Thank you for the life you gave me,
it was brief but don't complain,
I have all of Heavens glory,
suffered none of earthlings pain.
Thank you for the name you gave me,
I'd love to brought it fame,
But if I lingered in Earth's shadows
might instead have brought it shame.
Daddy gave me something for you,
It's our secret Mommy dear,
pressed it tight against my forehead,
whispered in my tiny ear.
I'll be waiting for you Mommy,
You and Daddy and the rest.
I'll be with you then forever.
then I'll give you Daddy's kiss.
