God's Newest Angel
A tiny little
girl lay in a tangled truck
Her mom sat pinned behind the wheel, her body it was stuck.
I held the little girl's hand and looked into her lifeless
I prayed, "Oh dear God, don't let this sweet one die.
She's only six years old dear God, she has just begun to live
She's got a lot of living left, she's got a lot to give.
Her eyes they were as clear as glass, no life was there to see
And my heart cried out to the Lord, please don't let this be.
The paramedics came just as she took a final breath
They began to breathe into her mouth and tap upon her chest.
Then they said she had a pulse, but to the hospital she must
But they'd have to take a helicopter for an ambulance was too
When they got her
to the hospital they said her brain was dead
And her parents stood there crying, not believing what they
How could their precious little girl be gone, please don't let
She can't be dead, please doctor, won't you check again and
We have done what
we can do for her and now it's in God's hands
I know you want her to live but He may have other plans.
Machines are keeping her alive, she's really already gone.
The decision is up to you, to let her travel on.
God is waiting
there for her, to take His loving hand
But she is wanting you to tell her that you will understand.
Now a tiny little angel so precious and so sweet
Shines so bright in heaven at the Master's feet.
to a sweet little girl
who lost her life in a traffic accident.
