A LIttle Boy

There once was a little boy,
the eighth child in the house.
And every time they looked at him they said,
"Who is like the Lord?"

For eight long years had there only been
one little brother in the pack.
And he had loved his sisters dear, but he was missing something.
Indeed, "Who is like the Lord?"

The older boy would fight his wars with no ally on his side,
Because his sisters stayed at home to sweep the cabin out.
And when a bear did attack the farm the sisters all would squeal,
but no one helped the brother out... he was all alone.
"Who is like the Lord?"

And then one day the mother dear did call her children in,
and tell them how one day near a baby would join them.
She said as to whether boy or girl that was for the Lord,
and as you know, "Who is like the Lord?"

Then one day bright and shiny, the news did come
the news that only the Lord can give.
And off the mother went to fetch the new baby.
The children prayed for safety and for health
And one of them offered up something else.

"Lord who is like you? Who indeed?
You call the deaf and heal the mute,
You gave me six lovely sisters of whom I'm very proud,
But, Lord I would love a brother just now."

And then the phone rang and the father was on the line.
The children listened with excitement and helped their breath,
The sisters smiled, they were safe... mother and child.
And the brother yelled a cheer... his brother wanted to see him soon.

So, off they went in the morning, for news like this can't wait.
They entered the room and gazed upon the babe so sweet.
They whispered praise of his hair and thanks to the Lord,
"Who is like you Lord, Who Indeed?

And so that day was born,
Michael Joseph

Who is like the Lord ?
