Heaven’s Very Special Child
A meeting was held quite far from earth.
“It’s time again for another birth,”
Said the angels to the Lord above.
This special child will need much love.
His progress may seem very slow.
Accomplishments he may not show:
And he’ll require extra care,
From the folks down there.
He may not run or laugh or play.
His thoughts may seem quite far away.
In many ways he won’t adapt.
And He’ll be known as handicapped.
So lets be careful where he’s sent;
We want his life to be content.
Please, Lord, find the parents who
Will do a special job for you.
They will not realize right away,
The leading part they’re asked to play.
But with this child sent from above,
Comes stronger faith and richer love.
And soon they’ll know the privilege,
In caring for this child from heaven.
Their precious child, so meek and mild.
Is Heaven’s Very Special Child.
