When God takes a child

By Keith Alan Watson

This Christian Poem answered why God takes a child. A comfort feeling when knows child we love most made to heaven and rest in the arms of Jesus Christ

When God takes a child Poem Lyrics

What does it mean to be a Christian

when the God you know and love

takes a child you know and love?

When He takes your child your baby

your most beloved belonging?

It means your child your baby

— made it to Heaven before you did —

It means – this moment – this second

your child your baby rests in the arms

of our Lord Jesus Christ

For the instant Time ceases God begins

The infant of infinity will forget that Time was,

but your child will always remember you!
