What's the greatest gift of all?
What can make anyone smile?
What fills a family's heart with love?
What's a gift sent from above?
What fills a house with joy?
A little girl or little boy
A child is a gift sent from Heaven
It's the best gift God can give
A little child to raise and love
As long as you live
Mommy said "How would you like
A very special gift?"
We're gonna have a little tyke
To spend the rest of our lives with
Thank you, God, for this gift
It's the best thing I can ask for
Now my life's complete
I can't wait 'til the baby's born
'Cause a child is the greatest gift of all
It sounded too good to be true
And down inside me, I knew
At 10:30 on Sunday morn'
My world came crashing down
My heart was filled with pain
And tears flooded my eyes
The baby was taken back to Heaven
The first thing I thought was "why?"
Why did God take him away?
I just wanted to cry
Daddy said "God decided
To take the baby now"
We were gonna have a little tyke
But God took him home
Why'd he take this gift away?
It was the best thing I could ask for
Now my heart's in two
I can't believe he's really gone
'Cause that child was the greatest gift of all
Why did he have to go?
Why did he have to die?
I don't understand
I guess I have to look on the bright side
There's a little angel up there
Looking down on me
He's in a better place now
He was my brother
But now he's my angel
A child is the greatest gift of all
Angel, precious angel
I'll never forget you
