Make a Difference Monday: Empty Arms


Empty arms are something
We did not expect to know.
But our plans are not His plans.
So from our arms you’ll go.

You came to us so quickly child.
So bright and sweet and new.
You left us just as quickly child.
Your time with us it flew.

Our love for you it grew dear one
With every passing day.
It’s with that love dear baby girl
We’re sending you away.

We pray now for your family.
We ask the Lord to guide
Their hands and your every step.
Your every need provide.

There are not words for all
The joy you brought to us.
Know that you are welcome if
Come back to us you must.

But for now we say goodbye
Dear precious baby girl.
We will be thankful for every day
God placed you in our world.

O Dear Lord please heal our hearts.
Please teach us to obey
And love the orphan more and more
With every passing day.

Will we dare do this again?
Will God make us so bold?
Yes, empty arms are open arms,
Another child to hold.
