With joy you came into our lives
With sorrow left us behind.
And in the arms of loving God
A refuge you did find.
It wasn’t what we dreamed.
But we held you close and touched your face
Just a moment as it seemed.
Your tiny form was perfect,
And why you went so quickly
It’s only God who knows.
We look now to eternity
That we will share some day.
What joy we’ll feel, what love we’ll share
In heaven’s glorious way.
