A Child Who's Loved
A child who's loved and knows she's loved
Will have a shield to carry her
Through all the troubles life can bring
Through everything that can occur.
A parent's true unselfish love
Is more precious far than gems or gold
And though her toys will broken be
The love she'll have when she is old.
The child who's had someone to trust
Will be trustworthy when she's grown
And generations after her
Will benefit from love once sown.
