Cradle Song

I watch beside your cradle
Your face touched by the moon
My heart just aches and trembles
With all my love for you

Your eyes shine like your father's
That nose looks just like me
I stare in awe and wonder
At such a mystery

How God can touch
The love of a man and wife
And blossom it
Into the breath of life
Just look at this life

Our eyes are filled with dreaming
We want so much for you
But we might fail you often
Before your life is through

Only your Heavenly Father
Can hear your every prayer
When we are just a memory
Your Lord will still be there

So on our knees
We pray this cradle song
That you'll always know
The Lord will keep you strong
We want you to understand
You rest in His loving hands
For you are Jesus' little lamb
