He sat with a chosen angel
“I’ve a special task for you,
It will mean you must leave for awhile,
But I know it’s a task you can do.
I’ve a special charge to place in your care,
Who will always need your love and care.
At first there on earth you will help him
To grow strong and wise and fair.
Teach him the path that will bring him
One day back home to heaven above,
Be there to gently guide him
With the soft quiet touch of a dove.
And one day when he is able to stand,
Tall and filled with your love,
You may return here to me
To watch over him from above,’
And the angel paused looking puzzled,
If I leave what then becomes of him?
He you have said will always need me?
Do his days become lost and dim?
But the Lord smiled to reassure her,
‘No, dear one, I would never let that be.
No matter where we are love connects us,
And love will always connect you and he.
Love is the golden cord that is ever there
And it connects you heart to heart,
It develops and strengthens there on earth
Even when you seem far apart.
And when you return here to heaven
That golden cord will still hold true.
You will never really be gone from him
While you love him and he loves you.
