Heaven's Special Child

A meeting was held quite far from earth
“It’s time again for another birth,”
Said the angels to the Lord above
This special child will need much love.
His progress may be very slow.
Accomplishments he may not show
And he’ll require extra care
From the folks he meets 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 person who
Will do this special job for you.
They may not realize straight away
The learning 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
Their precious child so meek and mild
Is Heaven’s Very Special Child.
