God's Special Child

A meeting was held quite far from the 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 seem very slow,
Accompishments 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 wont adapt
And he'll be known as a handicapped.

So let's be careful where he's sent;
we want his life to be content.
Please, Lord, find the parents who
Will do a special job for you.

They may not realize right away
The leading role they are asked to play.
but with this child sent from above
Comes stronger faith and richer love.

And soon they'll know the privilege given
In caring for this gift from heaven.
Their precious charge, so meek and mild
Is heaven's very special child.
