You came into my life one day,
Much to my surprise.
I didn’t know just how to act although,
I knew I’d love you so.
You gave my son a life of love,
The same you gave to me.
You left behind those you loved,
And flew across the sea.
And now as all the years have passed
I love you more today.
I didn’t think that could be,
Until you said to me.
I love to hear the way you talk
The way you sing, the way you walk.
I love you more than words can say,
You’re my child too, I always pray.
To keep you safe and in His arms,
To fill your life and keep you strong.
Dear Lord, please keep this child of yours
Safe and happy too.
You sent her to us in your time
The way you always do.
We thank you Lord and tell you everyday,
We love you Lord in each and every way
