Zechariah 8:5–‘The streets are full of boys and girls laying in Heaven.”
For all our children up in haven
This Christmas Prayer we offer now;
Although abruptly taken from us
Safely before God they humbly bow.
LIke the Wise Men of Ancient Yore
Our sincere reverence now we bring;
Snuggle our children close to your heart
—O Christmas Savior, Lord and King.
Christ–the infamous friend of children
On your warm lap they now come to call;
Please cuddle them closely right next to thee
This First Christmas In Heaven, one and all.
