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.
