Written for the children of the Sandy Hook Elementary School!
LET THE LITTLE CHILDREN COME UNTO ME
Just in time for Christmas, they entered that land
On Angles wings all in a row
Eight little boys and twelve little girls
Not feeling no pain or feeling no woe
The Morning Son met the children
Smiling from ear to ear
He cradled them under His wings
And wiped away each tear
Everyone of those children
Sit on His knee at the same time
Each one leaning on His breast
Their eyes ask him questions without saying a word
For Jesus reads the heart so no words must be heard
The question of the day, "Where is mom and dad"
"Are they here, can we see them?"
Jesus answered with a smile,
"Just 11 more days to wait,
And I promise I will take you to see them"
For on the day of my birth
My very special Angels must always visit earth"
O what Wonders their eyes did behold
One little boy watched in awe, as around the corner did fly
Someone he knew from out of the sky
Grandma came flying from out of the blue
Her wings were glistening with a purple, blue hue
There was so many people there to meet them
There was uncles, there was aunts
There was great grandma's and great grandpa's
What an awesome crew
There was generation after generation of people they instantly knew
All over heaven a shout rang out from the Heavenly Host
FATHER, come quickly, come see
There is someone special at the gate
It seems they must see you
And this Pure of Heart gang can't wait
I can see HIM rising from His throne
The sapphire glistening in the breeze
HIS woolen white hair cascading down HIS face
HIS eyes blazing like fire,
The mist from the rainbow covering the glowing metal around HIS waist
A blaze of fire tickles HIS feet with each step HE takes
What a sight to behold
Is this THE God that we know?
One second at the throne, The next second at the gate
The Light captures and holds and to my utter amaze
20 small children lift their voices in praise.
"O Lord this grandmother's heart might explode"
I see Him opening His Armor as twenty earth children fly to his side
Now they can take their first spiritual ride
They have a new class room
With a new address over the door
They have a brand new teacher that they adore
He has holes in his feet and holes in his hands
He makes clouds move at his command
A special invitation is sent out to you
You can join this Sandy Hook Gang
One talk with their teacher
Will make everything new!

And said to him, Hear you what these say? And Jesus said to them, Yes; have you never read, Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings you have perfected praise?
Two passages that powerfully describe God’s amazing appearance are
“Above the expanse over their heads was what looked like a throne of sapphire, and high above on the throne was a figure like that of a man. I saw that from what appeared to be his waist up he looked like glowing metal, as if full of fire, and that from there down he looked like fire; and brilliant light surrounded him. Like the appearance of a rainbow in the clouds on a rainy day, so was the radiance around him.”
“His head and hair were white like wool, as white as snow, and his eyes were like blazing fire. His feet were like bronze glowing in a furnace, and his voice was like the sound of rushing waters. In his right hand he held seven stars, and out of his mouth came a sharp double-edged sword. His face was like the sun shining in all its brilliance.”
