A Baby’s Secret
I’m just a little fellow
Who didn’t quite make it there
I went staight to be with Jesus
But I’m waiting for you here.
Don’t you fret about me mommy
I’m of all God’s lambs, most blessed
I’d have loved to stay there with you
But the shepherd knows what’s best.
Many dwellings 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 name you gave me
I’d have loved to brought it fame
But if I’d lingered in earth’s shadows
I’d might instead have brought it shame.
Daddy gave me something for you
It’s our secret mommy dear
He pressed it tight against my forehead
and whispered in my ear.
I’d be waiting for you mommy,
you, and Daddy and my sis.
I’ll be with you then forever
Then I’ll give you Daddy’s kiss.
