A Child To Love
You can have your wealth and riches All the things so many seek, Position, power, and success, The fame you long to keep.
You can earn as much as you wish, Reach a status high above, But none of these can equal Having one sweet child to love.
'Tis the greatest gift from heaven, Little arms that hold you tight, And a kiss so soft and gentle When you tuck them in at night.
A million precious questions And each story often read, Two eyes so bright and smiling, And a darling tousled head.
God has never matched the goodness Of a trusting little face, Or a heart so full of laughter Spreading sunshine every place.
A child to hold and cuddle, 'Tis a gift from God above, And the world is so much brighter When you have a child to love.
