Why do You want babies in heaven, Lord
Why did he have to go away so young
You gave him to her to love and protect
How can his time so soon be done

He brought such joy into all their hearts
His eyes were filled with love and peace
May he bring to You that same special love
And won't You please make this pain soon cease

Why do you want babies in heaven, Lord
How does this fit into Your pain
Make her heart soon gain understanding
This all seems more than she can stand

Still she thanks you for blessing her with him
And giving her memories to last for all time
She'll forever cherish the love he brought
Always feeling his little body close to hers

Why do you want babies in heaven, Lord
She believes for their innocence and joy
So till the time she can come to him
Please take care of her little boy
