I saw a child skipping down the street.
Her hair was dark like a raven’s wing.
Her eyes were blue as the summer sky,
Her face was sweet and I heard her sing.
She caught my eye as she passed by.
Her face was filled with a holy light.
I heard her laugh as she softly sang
The words she said with such delight:
“I’m a lucky child who is loved by God.
He expects me to give to others here.
It doesn’t matter if I’m not loved back.
God’s by my side and He is near.”
“My part is to do His gracious will,
To give His love to all in need,
To mirror His grace for all to see:
God is Love. This is my Creed.”
