Our Baby for a while; Our Angel Forever
Jesus needed an angel so gentle and pure
So he chose precious Ethyn for his own
To stand at the gate as a beckoning light
To show all of us the way home.
So when you are lonely, discouraged or blue
Remember his light shines night and day.
Just look toward Heaven and you'll see his smile
As he shines out to show you the way.
