A Prayer for Babies – Beauty beyond Compare!


What lovely babies born are twins –
A child of God, in His image!
Each birth is like a miracle,
But human beings soon forget.

Each baby is more than a toy
That man can ever make in life;
What beauty has the girl or boy –
A feat of your beloved wife!

How well they sleep in harmony!
Innocent souls that Maker makes;
Such sinless creatures tarnished get
By faulty parenting, and world.

What lovely kids they grow to be,
And talk and smile so lovingly!
To say ‘No! ’ to their birth is sin
And crime, the Maker can’t rescind.

Kids make the earth, a heaven first;
But world turns them into devils;
How hurt must be our Father God,
When human beings act reckless!

Oh, make the world a better place
For every child that’s born today;
Let happy be the human race,
By doing everything, God’s way.

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
