We begged and we pleaded…
but God still said no.
We don’t get to keep you
though we wanted you so.
Our hearts ache so badly
with pain we can’t bear…
O small one, we miss you…
It doesn’t seem fair.
We wanted to keep you, we wanted you here
To raise you, to love you, to hold you, my dear.
But God in His wisdom knows more than we do,
His plans are bigger, His purposes true.
Forced to trust Him and pressed to hold on
Through the dark of the night
Til the first glow of dawn.
Now He holds you forever in heaven above,
Someday we’ll see you, but until then
in my heart I will keep you with love that won’t end.
