Song For A Small Child Lyrics

Song For A Small Child by Leila Vey

(c) 1990. Music & Lyrics by Leila Vey Christensen

From a tiny seed you began to grow;
We loved you from the start.
In warmth and love you sprang to life
Under Mommy’s tender heart.
We smiled each time we felt you move;
Our souls were filled with awe.
How wonderful, this miracle;
We felt the world applaud.

Babe, tiny babe, entrusted to our care,
We pray that we are worthy of the trust placed there.

You reach for those around you
And we melt with your embrace.
There is nothing we’d deny you
And your trusting little face.
And it always makes me wonder
As we watch you sleep and play,
The joy you bring into our lives
Grows greater every day.

Child, precious child, as we watch you bloom and grow,
We pray that love will follow you
And everything you know.

Remember, child, the love here,
And you’ll never be alone.
We belong with one another
And we’ll always be your home.
For wherever life may take you
As you walk your chosen way,
There’s a trail within your heart that leads
You home with us each day.

Child, precious child, as we watch you bloom and grow,
We pray that love will guide you
And its peace you’ll always know.
