Heaven’s Very Special Child
A meeting was held quite far from earth
“It’s time again for another birth”
Said the angel to the Lord above,
“This special child will need much love.”
His progress may seem very slow,
Accomplishment he may not show.
And he’ll require extra care From the folks
he meets way 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 let’s 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 role 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 given
In caring for this gift from Heaven
Their precious charge,
so meek and mild
Is Heaven’s very special child.
