Her Little Hand In Mine

Poem By Joan Costner


A new little life at our house,
Complete with eternal soul ~
Someone to cuddle and play with,
New reason to set higher goals...
In the past I may have been careless ~
Now, I ask for guidance divine
For in my mind I've a picture
Of her little hand in mine.

She'll follow. I know, all my footprints,
And be known by the names that I wear,
So I'll make my decisions in earnest ~
I'll choose with still greater care;
For I know she'll copy my motions ~
She'll know when I step out of line;
Lord, help me to live so I'm worthy
Of her little hand in mine!

It's only a thin silver ribbon ~
This life so quickly can pass!
Just what I teach her of Jesus
Will for all of eternity last!
God. help me keep my affections
And hers, attached firmly to Thine ~
And walk toward the promise of Heaven
With her little hand in mine!

Joan Clifton Costner

Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
