|A Baby’s Secret (boy)|
|I’m just a little feller,
Who didn’t quite make it there.
I went straight to be with Jesus
But I’m waiting for you there.
Don’t you fret about me, Mommy,
I’m of all God’s lambs most blest;
I’d have loved to stay there with you
But the Shepherd knows what’s best.
Many dwelling here where I live,
Waited years to enter in;
Struggled through a world of sorrow
And their lives were marred with sin.
So sweet Mommy, don’t you sorrow,
Wipe those tears and chase the gloom,
I went straight to Jesus’ bosom
From my lovely Mother’s womb.
Thank you for the life you gave me,
It was brief, but don’t complain;
I have all of heaven’s glory
Suffered none of earthling’s pain.
Thank-you for the name you gave me,
I’d have loved to brought it fame;
But if I’d lingered in earth’s shadows
Might instead have brought it shame.
Daddy gave me something for you,
It’s our secret, Mommy dear,
Pressed it tight against my forehead,
Whispered in my tiny ear.
I’ll be waiting for you Mommy,
You and Daddy;
I’ll be with you then forever,
Then I’ll give you Daddy’s kiss.
