|Merry Christmas, Little One
|By Jana Spigener
|Jingle bells are ringing
across the town tonight.
Everywhere the children are singing,
Their faces are merry and bright.
It is always a sweet occasion,
Yet this year I feel so sad and blue
Just a short while ago
I had to say good-bye to you.
My precious child
I can't help but wish you were here with me
An ornament with your name engraved
hangs proudly on our tree
I always imagined our first Christmas together,
We'd tell you of Jesus and his birth.
God sent His one and only Son,
the greatest gift to earth.
Even though my heart is broken,
I know there is reason to celebrate.
My child you are with Jesus now.
Everyday there is Christmas joy for you
within Heaven's gate.
So Merry Christmas, little one.
I'm most grateful you were given to me,
if only for a while.
I know every Christmas from now on
I will remember you.
I'll thank God for you and smile.
