Beautiful Child

(Perry Desmond-Davies)

Beautiful Child is a lullaby written after a friend's daughter had her first baby.

Being a Mom myself, it brought back all those feelings from when my own son was just born: the sights, sounds, smell of a newborn baby that stay with you forever, even after all these years...

Beautiful Child


Sleeping baby, glorious child
Now that you're here, the world stops awhile
Beautiful baby, miracle mine
My heart is so full, a love for all time
I can't believe such a beautiful child
Look at what happens when love abides
I can't believe such a beautiful child
This is what happens when love abides...
Feather hair
Downy skin
Dew-kissed mouth
Dimple chin
Ten little fingers, ten tiny toes
The world is at your feet
Wherever you go
Oh, I can't believe such a beautiful child
This is what happens when love abides
I can't believe such a beautiful child
Look at what happens when love abides

Beautiful child...
Beautiful child.....
