The Hand of God

The hand of God reached down one day

To raise a lamb up high,

He took our hearts so broken

We had to question...why?

Why did you give us this dear child

To love and care so much?

To make our lives so complete

Just by his Angel Touch?

Then take him away so suddenly

To break our hearts in two,

Was it something that we did

Or something we didn't do?

These were the questions that we pondered

So many times a day,

Until we came to realize

We need only kneel and pray.

For God had chosen us

To give this child our love,

To teach us of His ways

Before he left for above.

And this he did accomplish

As was His master's plan,

This beautiful child He lent to us...

Our own most precious Lamb!
