I bet this was written by my younger self in 2000…


You are the promise we received

The day you were conceived

That one so precious, sweet

We would call our own

So, you our darling child

We bring to the Lord

With many songs of praise

And a promise in our hearts

To teach you all His ways

Whilst you are still young

So that as you grow

You will love the Lord

Who watches over you

His precious little one
