What is this child we give to God?
What could its life have achieved?
How could such innocence and beauty
Be taken leaving us so deeply grieved?
What child is this given to you, our God?
The very God who gave him to us
How could his little life end so suddenly?
No reason…leaving us to only trust?
What child is this in your arms Dear Lord?
Whose breathe is no longer there
How could you not help him to live on?
No reason offered; seeming not to care
What child do you take Dear God?
This little one who was ours
How can we go on without his presence?
Please God, use your great powers
What child is this bound for heaven Oh God?
Why must it be our precious love?
How will we go on alone with empty arms?
Oh God, please look down from above
What child is this forever lost, Dear God
Too soon we say our goodbyes
How will we cope in our sadness and pain?
The tears never to leave our eyes
What child is this Dear Lord, My God?
Tis’ ours to give unto thee
Please hold, love, and keep him close
In Heaven and in our hearts he’ll be
