Sonatina for Baby Dear            Lyrics to Song #1

A song for a baby’s Dedication-to-the-Lord Ceremony-

 

Little one, little child, (name of child) little precious one

 

We love you – Life’s Treasure, Life’s Sunshine.

 

Sweet child – gift from God,

long before your birth,

 

we prayed His love would follow you

 

all the days of your life,

 

gift from above

 

 

Little babe – cherub mine,

 

we give your life to God

 

to form, to mold, to guide, to save

 

and to embrace with love, divine…

 

He smiled down on us

 

and blessed our lives with you.
