A meeting was held so far from earth
It was the time for another birth

The angels said to the Lord above
This special child will need more love

For progress may be very slow
Accomplishment may never show

This special child will need much care
From the people way down there

This child may not talk, run or play,
And thoughts may seem so far away

In many ways will not try to adapt
Known as ‘disabled’ and ‘handicapped

Please be careful where this one is sent
We want this child to be so content

O please, Lord, find the parents who
Will do a very special job for You

They will not realize right away
The leading role that they have to play

But with this child sent from above
Comes stronger faith, and richer love

Soon they’ll know the privilege given
In caring for their gift from Heaven

Their precious child, so meek and mild
Is Heaven’s very special child
