ELIAS DE LOS RIOS|
DONNA - Elias De Los Rios, 38,
Heavens Very Special Child
A meeting was held quite far from Earth,
"It's time again for another birth",said the angels to the Lord above,
"This special child will need much love.
His progress may seem very slow, accomplishments he may not show.
And he'll require extra care from the folks he meets way down there
He may not run or laugh or play:
His thoughts may seem quite far away.
In many ways he won't adapt and he'll be known as handicapped.
So let's be careful where he's sent, we want his life to be content.
Please, Lord, find parents who, will do a special job for you,
They will not realize right away, the leading role they're asked to play.
But with this child sent from above, comes stronger faith and richer love.
And soon they'll know the privilege given in caring for this gift from heaven.
Their precious charge so meek and mild
Is heaven's very special child"…
Sent from Heaven
