A meeting was held quite far from earth,"its time for another birth."
Said the angels to the Lord above, "This special child will need much love."
His progress may seem very slow. Accomplishments he may not show.
And he'll require much extra care, From the folks he meets down there.
He may not run or laugh or play. His thoughts may seem quite far away.
In many ways he wouldn't adapt, and he will be known as "Handicapped."
So let's be careful where he's sent. We want his life to be content.
Please, Lord, find the parents who, will do a special job for you.
They will not realize right way, The leading role they're asked to play.
But with this child sent from above, Comes stronger faith and richer love.
And soon they'll know the privilege given, in caring for this gift from Heaven.Their precious charge, so meek and mild, is Heaven's Very Special Child.
