New Baby Song

Seasons have a way of changing
Whether or not you’re ready for them to
Just when I thought I was through growing
God gave me more to do
Bring in one more small life
One little voice
One more cry demanding for hugs
One more tummy for food
One more mind for thought
One more heart to fill with love!

Make my arms strong enough
To hold another child
Help me to believe I’ve got enough
Because it’s been awhile
I know if you’ve given me more to do
Somewhere inside me it’s there
All of those things
A small person needs
It’s not too much for me to bear

Here’s an album of photos from the future
Parties birthday and slumber and swim
There’s a shot of the cast for his elbow
When he ventured too far on a limb
Good decisions mixed with unwise ones
Here’s graduation, a girlfriend, a car
If it’s not too much to ask for
God can you please
Help his angel keep up with his star

I imagined long ago how my life would be
Now I’m climbing a ladder of faith
Trusting as I lift each foot up
The rung will be there

Make my arms strong enough
To hold another child
Help me to believe I’ve got enough
Because it’s been awhile
I know if you’ve given me more to do
Somewhere inside me it’s there
All of those things
A small person needs
It’s not too much for me to bear
Not too much for me to…
Bear
