    Nursery Corner

    Lord, let this baby lie

    Safe here in my lap;

    Let the world spin by;

    Let my baby nap.

    Broken loves come soon enough,

    Broken hopes and broken faith.

    May this child learn to trust;

    May she learn to seek thy face.

    Then when trials rage around her,

    Then when hell’s stiff wars combine,

    She will feel thine arms surround her;

    They will wrap her firm, like mine.
