I Saw a Child
I saw a child who couldn't walk,
Then sit on a horse, laugh and talk.
He rode it through a field of daisies
and yet he could not walk unaided.
I saw a child, no legs below,

and laugh at the wonder in our faces.

take up and hold the reins of life.
And that same child was heard to say,
"Thank God for showing me the way...
