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.
