My Son

Softly, sweetly, gently, dreaming
Safe in my arms, you are my son

You were born just last night
Screaming loud from the light
Told your mom. “He’s alright”
Held you close, held you tight

Said, “How are you my son?
“Look at how you’ve begun”
And your eyes seemed to say
“Will you show me the way?”

Then my heart filled with joy
For this beautiful boy
In my arms
You’re my son

Said, “How are you my son?
“Look at how you’ve begun”
As I watch over you
I will teach and love you

And there’s no one to fear
Not as long as I”m here
You’re my son
You’re my son

Hold you close
Hold you tight
I love you
You’re my son
Good night
