What is this God has given me –
Has placed within my arms?
What joy He’s bestowed on me
In such a precious bundle;
What pure love He has blessed me with
In your beautiful blue eyes.
What happiness wills up inside
When I see your sweet, sweet smile;
What comfort God has given me
Within your warm soft hugs.
What peace God’s placed within my heart
As I watch you in your slumber.
What hope burns warm within my soul
When I hear your hopes and dreams.
What great faith God has taught me
While listening to your prayers.
What lessons of life I’ve learned
As I’ve watched you grow each day;
What wisdom God has taught me
Through this beloved child.
