GOD'S LENT CHILD
"I'll lend you for a little while a child of mine," God said
"For you to love the while they live, and mourn for when they're dead
It may be six or seven years, or forty two or three
But will you, till I call them back, take care of them for me?"
"They'll bring their charms to gladden you and should their stay be brief,
You'll have their lovely memories, as a solace for your grief.
I cannot promise they will stay, since all from earth return
But there are lessons taught below I want this child to learn."
I have looked the whole world over in search of teachers true,
And from the things that crowd life's lane, I have chosen you.
Now, will you give them all your love? Not think the labor vain?
Nor hate me when I come to take this lent child back again?"
"I fancied that I heard you say "Dear Lord, Thy will be Done"
For all the joys this child will bring, the risk of grief we'll run
We'll shelter them with tenderness, we will love them while we may
And for the happiness we've known, forever grateful stay.
But should the angels call for them much sooner than we have planned,
We'll brave the bitter grief that comes, and try to understand.
