The baby words that I could speak
before I left you the other day
Were sweet to you, yet with those words
I cannot say what I want to say.
My spirit, grown as it was before,
Would seek you now -- to ease your pain.
Oh, Mother, if you could but know
My happiness, your grief would wane.
When I awoke the other day
it was like morning in my room --
And sunrise colors blended there
like from a great eternal loom.
I looked for you and daddy too --
But the angels came around my bed --
And then a Man who shone so bright --
He picked me up and hugged me tight.
He took me with Him in His arms --
and people cried and touched my hair --
And squeezed my hands and kissed my cheeks --
They were so glad to see me there.
I live now in a heavenly place --
more beautiful than all the earth --
Even the best and happiest place
where I lived with you, ever since my birth.
Here I shall always hear kind words --
And never fall and skin my knees --
Or have a fever of a cold --
And never, never will grow old.
And never will I feel a fear
or have bad dreams in the dark of night --
Or cry with longing, hurt or shame --
or be heart-broken, or lose my sight.
But always abide in warmth and love --
That's all there is here up above --
Yet, that was all I knew with you --
and I want you to know this too;
That even as my life was short --
Your gift to me was not in vain --
Oh, Mother, it is hard to learn --
that Glory hides behind our pain!
