Heaven’s Very Special Child
A meeting was held quite far from earth.
“It’s time again for another birth,”
Said the angels to the lord.
“This special child will need much love.
His progress may seem very slow,
Accomplishments he may not show.
And he’ll require extra care,
From the folks he meets down there.
He may not run or laugh or play,
His thoughts may seem quite far away.
So let’s be careful where he’s sent,
We want his life to be content.
Please Lord, find the family who,
Will do a special job for you.
They will not realize right away,
The leading role they are asked to play.
But with this child from up above,
Comes stronger faith and richer love.
And soon they’ll know the privilege given,
In caring for this gift from heaven.
Their precious charge, so meek and mild,
Is heaven’s very special child.”
