From Mommy With Love

Your world is small,
For now that's best.
I'll keep you safe,
Through life's first tests.

Each fall to the floor,
And each skinned knee,
Beside you with love
Is where I'll be.

Your first school fight,
Your first heart break,
It's with my protection,
These steps you'll take.

But when your world begins to grow,
There's someone else that you should know.
He's helping me be what you need,
Until his love your heart can see.

There's nothing that his hands can't touch.
He holds you close when life's too much.
Just speak his name and he'll be there,
To show you just how much he cares.

Tonight I hold you in my arms.
With him I keep you safe from harm.
Listen as I say his name,
So you will know to do the same.

Thank you, Jesus, for so much,
For your strength, your care, your touch.
Keep us close so he can see,
The amazing love you still show me.

Amen.
