Day-old Child

My day-old child lay in my arms. With my lips against his ear I whispered strongly, "How I wish- I wish that you could hear.

I've a hundred wonderful things to say (A tiny cough and a nod) Hurry, hurry, hurry, and grow So I can tell you about God."

My day-old baby's mouth was still And my words only tickled his ear But a kind of a light passed through his eyes And I saw this thought appear:

"How I wish I had a voice and words; I've a hundred things to say. Before I forget I'd tell you of God- I left Him yesterday."
