Why Would We Adopt?
Some would gather
money along the path of life.
Some would gather roses and rest from worldly strife.
But I would gather children from among the thorns of sin.
I would seek a little child with a big and toothless grin.
For money cannot enter in the land of endless day.
And roses that are gathered will wilt along the way.
But oh, the laughing children as we cross the sunset sea,
And the gates swing wide to Heaven, I'll take her in with me....
