My Broken Doll

A broken doll was sent to me
From Heaven up above
A doll to have and hold
A broken doll to love.
My joy was turned to sadness
My life I thought was done
I'd hoped the doll I would receive
Would be the perfect one.
But God does send us various things,
He even sent His Son
Recall the passage in His prayer.
Thy will Lord, will be done.
God could have sent a perfect doll
But our broken one was blessed
She straightened our religion
I hope I passed the test.
It's strange how that seemed so sad
Should be a joy and fun.
Thank God for this precious gift.
My broken doll, my daughter.
