Little One

Hey, there, little one
Your life has just begun
You’re learning how to cry
You’re learning how to smile
You are a blessed one
You are a holy one

Oh, child, may loving arms
Surround and keep you warm
There as you learn to crawl
To catch you when you fall
And may you learn to stand
Held by a loving hand

Hey, there, little one
Your life has just begun
You’re learning how to walk
You’re learning how to talk
You are a blessed one
You are a holy one

Oh, running, dancing child
May your heart stay free and wild
And as your days unfold
May your hopes and dreams be told
And may your voice be heard
and held as holy word

Hey there, little one
The moon, the stars, the sun
The hills and valleys low
The trees and flowers know
We are all blessed ones
We are all holy ones
