"Prayers for This Child"


"I do not know how I am to pray for this child
as a mother I don't want my baby denied
but in the waiting in the waiting
I learned...

every instinct in me wants to shield her from pain

take the arrows of misery heartache and blame

but in the sorrow in the sorrow I learned to hold on...

I only have two eyes - be all seeing

I only have two hands - be everywhere

I do not know enough - to be all knowing

I give this baby up into your care

I do not know how, how to pray for this child

I want to guard her from everything wicked and wild
but in the trial in the trial
I learned to hold on
And in the trial, in the trial I learned to hold on to the heart of God."
