Funeral Prayers & Verses for a child: 1

God's Little Angel

God needed an angel in Heaven
To stand at the Savior's feet;
His choice must be the rarest
A lily pure and sweet.
He gazed upon the mighty throng
Then stopped  and picked the best,
Our child was His chosen one
With Jesus she's (he's) now at rest.

With The Angels

If only the sky could open up;
And his dear little face I could see;
Oh, what a wonderful feeling;
I know would come over me.
But he is with the Angels;
Far from sin and pain;
Where Jesus said: "Believe in Me;
And thou shalt see him again"

Heavenly Home

Our darling has gone to the Angels above;
Where there's nothing but
happiness, joy and love.
Gone from this world, so full of strife;
Back to the God that gave her life.
But rejoice that God chose
our sweet flower for His own;
And has taken her back to His Heavenly home.

A Special Girl

She was so very, very special
And was so from the start
You held her in your arms
But mainly in your heart
And like a single drop of rain
That on still waters fall,
Her life did ripples make
And touched the lives of all.
She's gone to play with the angels
In heaven up above
So keep your special memories
And treasure them with love
Although your darling daughter
Was with you just a while
She'll live on in your heart
With a sweet remembered smile.

Your Angel Baby

In a castle, just beyond your eye,
Your baby plays with angel toys that money cannot buy.
Who are you to wish him back to this world of strife,
No, play on your baby, he'll have eternal life.
At night whaen all is silent and sleep forsakes your eyes,
You'll hear his tiny footsteps come running to your side.
His little hands caress you so tenderly and sweet,
You'll breathe a prayer and close your eyes and embrace him in your sleep.
Now you have a treasure that you rate above all others,
You have know true glory,
You are still his mother.

The Day God Took You Home

In tears we saw you sinking,
And watched you pass away.
Our hearts were almost broken,
We wanted you to stay.
But when we saw you sleeping,
So peaceful, free from pain,
How could we wish you back with us,
To suffer that again. It broke our hearts to
lose you, But you did not go alone,
For part of us went with you,
The day God took you home.

My Little Angel

You've just walked on ahead of me
And I've got to understand
You must release the ones you love
And let go of their hand.
I try and cope the best I can
But I'm missing you so much
If I could only see you
And once more feel your tuch.
Yes, you've just walked on ahead of me
Don't worry I'll be fine
But now and then I swear I feel
Your hand slip into mine.

lead us, who grieve at this untimely death,
to a new and deeper faith in your love,
which brought your only Son Jesus
through death into resurrection life.

A Parent's Prayer

When a child is apart,
even for a little while,
a parent says a prayer.
We ask the Lord to protect…
to be where we cannot be,
to go where we cannot go.
In Him we place our trust,
for He sees, He knows.
Though how your heart must break,
parted for now from your little one,
know that the Lord keeps your little one safe,
with Him, where we all belong.
He will keep your child in a loving embrace,
just as He keeps you, a child, too.
That is His answer to a parent's prayer,
that is His love --
forever, everywhere.

Funeral Prayers & Verses for a child: 13

"If ever there is tomorrow when we're not together.. there is something you must always remember.
You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
But the most important thing is, even if we're apart.. I'll always be with you."
Winnie the Pooh (A.A. Milne)

Funeral Prayers & Verses for a child: 14

Although we seem so far apart,
You're always here within our hearts.
You filled our lives with joy and pleasure
You were to us a precious treasure.
A little while shall pass and then,
We'll see each other once again.
Loved, remembered and held so dear,
In minds and hearts you're always here.

Sometimes God picks a flower that's still in full bloom.
Sometimes the flower that is chosen, we feel He's picked too soon.
We're at peace knowing; in God's heavenly garden,
He has placed the ones we treasure.
You have changed our lives forever.

My Little Angel

You’ve just walked on ahead of me
And I’ve got to understand
You must release the ones you love
And let go of their hand.
I try and cope the best I can
But I’m missing you so much
If I could only see you
And once more feel your touch.
Yes, you’ve just walked on ahead of me
Don’t worry I’ll be fine
But now and then I swear I feel
Your hand slip into mine.
God Took Him To His Loving Home
God saw him getting tired, a cure was not to be.
He wrapped him in his loving arms and whispered ‘Come with me.’
He suffered much in silence, his spirit did not bend.
He faced his pain with courage, until the very end.
He tried so hard to stay with us but his fight was not in vain,
God took him to His loving home and freed him from the pain.
AnonShe was so very, very special
And was so from the start
You held her in your arms
But mainly in your heart
And like a single drop of rain
That on still waters fall,
Her life did ripples make
And touched the lives of all.
She's gone to play with angels
In heaven up above
So keep your special memories
And treasure. them with love
Although your darling daughter
Was with you just a while
She'll live on in your heart
With a sweet remembered smile.

Funeral Prayers & Verses for a child: 18

Then the child opened its eyes, and looked up into the angel's beautiful face,
which beamed with happiness, and at the same moment they were in heaven,
where joy and bliss reigned. The child received wings like the other angel,
and they flew about together, hand in hand.
By Hans Christian Andersen

God's garden has need of a little flower.
It had grown for a time here below.
But in tender love.
He took it above.
To a more favorable climate to grow.

Golden Memories

They say memories are golden, well, maybe that is true.
I never wanted memories, I only wanted you.

A million times I cried. If love alone could have saved you,
you never would have died. In life I loved you dearly, in death I love you still.
In my heart you hold a place no one else could fill.
If tears could build a stairway and heartache make a lane.
I’d walk the path to Heaven and bring you back again.
Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same. But as God
calls us back one by one, the chain will link again.

Precious Son

God, I know you gave your precious Son
To give us life with You.


But we didn’t want our son to leave,
Cause he was precious too.
We all are special in your eyes
And all to you return.
We know our son will not come back,
And for this our hearts still yearn.
Our time on earth is for learning,
And when our lessons are through,
Our Lord will choose the time we leave,
And we come back to you.
Our precious son is with you,
And there will be a day,
That we too will leave this earth,
And you will light our way.
His arms will be wide open,
And the wait will be worthwhile,
When we see again our precious son,
And the splendor of his smile
.

Little Angels

When God calls little children to dwell with Him above,
We mortals sometime question the wisdom of His love.
For no heartache compares with the death of one small child
Who does so much to make our world, seem wonderful and mild
Perhaps God tires of calling the aged to his fold,
So He picks a rosebud, before it can grow old.
God knows how much we need them, and so He takes but few
To make the land of Heaven more beautiful to view.
Believing this is difficult still somehow we must try,
The saddest word mankind knows will always be “Goodbye.”
So when a little child departs, we who are left behind
Must realize God loves children, Angels are hard to find.

A Little Angel

Today it would be wonderful
To see you play and smile
But heaven lent you to this world
For just a little while
And in that short but precious time
You brought along much love
And all that love is with you now
In heaven up above.
Your leaving caused so many tears
And such a lot of pain
But God needed one more angel
So he took you back again.

A Child Loaned

"I'll lend you for a little time 
A child of Mine." He said.
"For you to love the while he lives
And mourn for when he's dead. 
It may be six or seven year 
Or twenty-two or three 
But will you, till I call him back 
Take care of him for Me? 
He'll bring his charms to gladden you 
And should his stay be brief, 
You'll have his lovely memories 
As solace for your grief. 
I cannot promise he will stay 
Since all from Earth return, 
But there are lessons taught down there 
I want the child to learn. 
I've looked this wide world over 
In my search for teacher's true, 
And from the throngs that crowd life's lanes, 
I have selected you; 
Now will you give him all your love, 
Nor think the labour vain 
Nor hate Me when I come to call 
And take him back again? 
I fancied that I heard them say, 
"Dear Lord, They will be done, 
For all the joy Thy child shall bring, 
For the risk of grief we'll run. 
We'll shelter him with tenderness, 
We'll love him while we may, 
And for the happiness we've known, 
Forever grateful stay. 
But should the angels call for him 
Much sooner than we planned, 
We'll brave the bitter grief that comes 
And try to understand."
Edgar A. Guest

There Is A Special Angel

There is a special Angel in Heaven
that is part of me.
It is not where I wanted him
but where God wanted him to be.
He was here but just a moment
like a night time shooting star.
And though he is in Heaven
he isn't very far.
He touched the heart of many
like only an Angel can do.
So I send this special message
to the Heaven up above.
Please take care of my Angel
and send him all my love.

Too Soon ~ Mary Yarnall

This was a life that had hardly begun
No time to find your place in the Sun
No time to do all you could have done
But we loved you enough for a lifetime


No time to enjoy the world and it's wealth
No time to take life down off the shelf
No time to sing the songs of yourself
Thou you had enough love for a lifetime


Those who live long endure sadness and tears
But you'll never suffer the sorrowing years
No betrayal, no anger, no hatred, no fears
Just love - Only love - In your lifetime.

For Lily - Polly Whittington

I'm sorry . . . I could not stay
To laugh and cry and play with you,
Hold hands to cross the road,
To swing the swing and dance barefoot.
I'm so sorry . . . I just had to go.


But I shall not miss what I never had.
There was a shadow across my light. . .
I was almost perfect . . . but not quite.


I shall never tie a bow in my hair
Nor wonder what I should wear
But it's not so bad.
I shall not miss what I never had.


I'm sorry I had to leave. . .
I was not perfect enough to live
But I will stay flawless in your eyes. . .
For I shall be the purest thing
That you shall ever know
And I leave my handprint on your heart.


So, remember this. . .
I will never troubled be,
Or ever grieve or disappoint
I am complete in my brief and quiet history
.

Yes . . . I would have loved to live with you
And look through each morning window,
But I shall not miss what I could not have
I'm just sorry I could not stay.

Tiny Angel

For brief and fleeting moment, an angel touched the ground;
With tiny wings and halo, and sweet, soft angel sounds.


Blessing the lives of others, in beauty and in grace;
Those who saw the angel, knew God had kissed his tiny face.

The angel came for reasons we may not understand;

A journey brief, with gifts so great, and guided by God's hand.

So, rest now tiny angel, your work on earth is through;


In the beauty of God's perfect love we saw His gift in you.

Safe in the arms of the angels ...

Safe in the arms of the angels
Baby Jordan slumbers today,
Not destined for life on this earth
But a home so far away.


Just as far away as heaven
Just as close as the beat of our hearts,
And although we can't be with you
We will love you wherever you are.


A dream that blessed us with beauty
Is the hope that still shines our way,
That you rest in the arms of the angels
Till we meet again one sweet day.

Angel of my Tears ~ Author Unknown

How do you love a person
who never got to be,
or try to envision a face
you never got to see?
How do you mourn the death of one
who never got to live.
When there's nothing to feel good about
and nothing to forgive?
...I love you, my little baby,
my companion of the night.
Wandering through my lonely hours,
beautiful and bright.
What does it mean to die
before you ever were born,
To live the lovely night of life
and never see the dawn?
Ah! My little baby,
you lived like anyone!
Life's a burst of joy and pain.
And then like yours, it's done.
I love you, my little baby,
just as if you'd lived for years.
No more, no less, I think of you,
the Angel of my tears.

Baby castle

In a baby castle,
Just beyond my eye,
My baby plays with angel toys
Money cannot buy.


Who am I to wish him back
Into this world of strife.
No ... play on, my baby,
You have eternal life.

At night when all is silent
And sleep forsakes my eyes,
I'll hear his tiny footsteps
Come running to my side.


His little hands caress me
So tenderly and sweet.
I'll close my eyes and breathe a prayer
And embrace him in my sleep.


Now I have a treasure
That I rate above all other.
I have known true glory.
I am still his father.

Little Snowdrop - Author Unknown

The world may never notice
If a Snowdrop doesn't bloom,
Or even pause to wonder
If the petals fall too soon.


But every life that ever forms,
Or ever comes to be,
Touches the world in some small way
For all eternity.


The little one we longed for
Was swiftly here and gone.
But the love that was then planted
Is a light that still shines on.


And though our arms are empty,
Our hearts know what to do.
For every beating of our hearts
Says that we love you.

Dad's poem

We never had the chance to play, to laugh, to rock, to wiggle
We long to hold you, touch you now, and listen to your giggle.
She'll always be your mother, and I'll always be your Dad,
You will always be our child - the child we never had.


But now you're gone ... but yet you're here. We sense you everywhere,
You are our sorrow and our joy. There's love in every tear.
Just know our love goes deep and strong, that we'll forget you never,

The child we had, but never had - and yet will have forever.

Do Not Judge

Do not judge a biography by it's length,
Nor by the number of pages in it.
Judge it by the richness of it's contents


Sometimes those unfinished are among the most poignant...
Do not judge a song by it's duration
Nor by the number of it's notes
Judge it by the way it touches and lifts the soul


Sometimes those unfinished are among the most beautiful...
And when something has enriched your life
And when it's melody lingers on in your heart
Is it unfinished?
Or is it endless?

"A Mother's Prayer" ~ song by Celine Dion

I pray you'll be my eyes
And watch her where she goes
And help her to be wise
Help me to let go


Every mother's prayer
Every child knows
Lead her to a place
Guide her with your grace
To a place where she'll be safe


I pray she finds your light
And holds it in her heart
As darkness falls each night
Remind her where you are


Every mother's prayer
Every child knows
Need to find a place
Guide her to a place
Give her faith so she'll be safe


Lead her to a place
Guide her with your grace
To a place where she'll be safe
