Please bless this child
Who is mourned so deeply.
Give her a special place
In Your Child's kingdom.
Help us not to feel bitter,
But to cling instead to our faith
In Your Sovereignty in all things...even this.
Bless the parents who gave her life
And loved her so dearly.
Comfort them with the knowledge
That she rests safely in Your arms.
Be with all those whose lives she touched
During her brief stay here.
We celebrate her life.
How it touched ours!
She was loved by so many!
We know that, even now,
You are holding her close.
And we rejoice that, through faith in Your Son,
We will be reunited with her one day.
Until then, Lord,
Supply us with the daily grace we will need
To accept this in such a way as to bring You glory.
We love her, Lord.
We remember her.
We miss her.
We give her to You.
