Prayer E44

A Lament for my Baby
I never got to hear you laugh,
you never saw me cry.
I didn’t get a chance to say “Hello,”
you never said “Goodbye.”
I didn’t think that I could feel so sad,
lost and forlorn, I never knew God chose
his angels before some of them were born.
Your life was short yet special,
I shared it all exclusively,
I felt you breathe, I felt you kick,
you were alive inside of me.
Every baby is an angel,
and every angel is divine,
God needed one in heaven,
He came down and took mine.
And although we are not together,
we’re not really apart, for you’ll always
occupy a space deep within my heart.
Time has begun to ease my pain,
it’s only some days now I cry,
when I wish I could have said “Hello”
and heard you say “Goodbye.”

Prayer E45

A Place Where Children Are
What kind of place would heaven be
with all its streets of gold,
if all the souls, that dwell up there
like yours and mine were old?
How strange would heaven’s music sound
when harps begin to ring,
if children were not gathered round
to help the angels sing. The children
that God sends to us are only just a loan,
He knows we need their sunshine
to make the house a home.
We need the inspiration
of a baby’s blessed smile,
He doesn’t say they’ve come to stay,
just lends them for a while.
Sometimes it takes them years
to do the work for which they come.
Sometimes in just a month or two
our Father calls them home.
I like to think some souls up there
bear not one sinful scar. I love to think
of heaven as a place where children are.

Prayer E46

Child’s Prayer
Weep not for me,
My family dear,
I am not dead,
But sleeping here,
As I am now,
You shall be,
So be prepared to follow me.
Short was my life,
Long is my rest,
To take me home,
God thought it best.

Prayer E47

God Needed an Angel in Heaven (Girl)
God needed an angel in Heaven
To stand at the Savior’s feet;
His choice must be the rarest
A lily pure and sweet.
He gazed upon the mighty throng
Then stopped and picked the best,
Our child was His chosen one
With Jesus she’s now at rest.

Prayer E48

God Needed an Angel in Heaven (Boy)
God needed an angel in Heaven
To stand at the Savior’s feet;
His choice must be the rarest
A lily pure and sweet.
He gazed upon the mighty throng
Then stopped and picked the best,
Our child was His chosen one
With Jesus he’s now at rest.

Prayer E49

Little Angels
When God calls little children
to dwell with him above,
We mortals sometimes question
the wisdom of His love.
For no heartache compares
with the death of one small child,
Who does so much to make our world
seem wonderful and mild.
Perhaps God tires of calling
the aged to His fold,
So He picks a rosebud
before it can grow old.
God knows how much we need them
and so He takes but few,
To make the land of heaven
more beautiful to view.
Believing this is difficult
still somehow we must try.
The saddest word mankind knows
will always be “Goodbye.”
So when a little child departs,
we who are left behind,
Must realize God loves children
Angels are hard to find.
