Children are blessings. Our sure heritage.
Our gifts from God. And if all this is so:
When I survey the world – its broken stage –
And notice the drab workings here below:
I see so many corpses left to die.
Aborted babes – torn from out mother’s wombs
And murdered by their mothers’ choice whereby
Their severed limbs are thrown in steel tombs.
Are children blessings? Inconvenience?
What mysteries are wrapped up in a child!
Futures they might have had! What glib pretense
Is made when baby’s death “mum’s choice” is styled!
God grant us all deliverance from those
Who others would haply as trash dispose.
