You lie there sleeping
With your finger in your mouth;
You’ve no idea
What the fuss is all about.
Before yesterday
No one’s ever seen your face;
You belong here now,
From now on this is your place—
You are family,
A gift from God to us all,
Wonderfully made,
So perfect but oh so small.

I can’t help thinking
As I touch your tiny cheek
How special you are,
How amazingly unique;
There never was a you,
Never will be one again—
You, my little one,
Unique in the world of men!!
What’s your destiny?
What path will life’s journey take?
There will be pitfalls,
Like me, you will make mistakes.

May you know Jesus
As your Saviour and your Friend
May He walk with you
From now on ‘till journey’s end;
I know He’s faithful,
He’s my Master and my Guide;
Through this life’s sojourn
He has always walked beside;
When I have stumbled
He has kept my footsteps sure,
Keeping me on track—
By His strength you will endure.

Sleep on little man,
Rest contented in your bed,
You’re just beginning—
All your days are still ahead;
My trip’s well advanced,
I’ve been travelling awhile,
My steps slowing now
With each long and weary mile.
I wish you Godspeed
For those many days to come—
God bless you always—
Grandad’s wish for his grandson

I love this very dear poem! I wish every child could have a Christian Grandpa to bless him and to teach him of God's blessing.
