Taken from God’s Lent Child, author unknown
I’ll lend you for a little while, a child of mine, God said
For you to love the while she lives and mourn for when she’s dead.
It may be six or seven years, or forty-two or three
But will you, till I call her back, take care of her for me?

Now will you give her all your love nor think it all in vain,
Nor hate me when I come to take this lent child back again?
I think our hearts accepted, and said “Thy will be done.
For all the joys this child will bring the risk of grief we’ll run.

We’ll shelter her with tenderness, we’ll love her while we may
And for the happiness we’ve known, we’ll ever grateful stay.
But should the angels call her back much sooner than we’d planned
We’ll brave the bitter grief that comes and try to understand.”

To live in the hearts we leave behind is not to die ~ Thomas Campbell
