What joy it is to see our childrens’ children
What joy it is to see our children’s children!
The growing family of our closest kin;
each birth, each boy or girl, each man or woman,
alike yet different, full of rich potential,
with minds to open and with hearts to win
as God’s amazing miracles begin.
2. How good it is to know our children’s children!
To work and play with them, to laugh or cry,
to talk and listen, teach and learn together,
to share the word of God and its surprises,
enjoy the questions who and where and why,
and find the treasures money cannot buy.
3. How great it is to love our children’s children!
To pray, give thanks, and with them sing God’s praise,
to know today, whatever comes tomorrow,
delight or pain, reversal or achievement,
you, Lord, keep watch in love on all our ways,
the Source and Guide and Goal of all our days.
