little feller


I'm just a little feller
Who didn't quite make it there.
I went straight to be with Jesus

But I'm waiting for you there.

Don't you fret about me Mommy
I'm of all God's lambs most blest.
I'd have loved to stay there with you
But the shepherd knows what's best.

Many dwelling here where I live
waited years to enter in
Struggled through a world of sorrow
And there lives are marred with sin.

So sweet Mommy don't you sorrow
Wipe those tears and chase the gloom.
I went straight to Jesus' bosom
from my lovely mother's womb.

Thank you for the life you gave me
It was brief, but don't complain.
I have all of Heaven's glory
Suffered none of earthling's pain.

Thank you for the name you gave me
I'd have loved to brought it fame.
But if I'd lingered in earth's shadows
Might instead have brought it shame.

Daddy gave me something for you
It's our secret, Mommy dear.
Pressed it tight against my forehead
Whispered in my tiny ear.

I'll be waiting for you, Mommy
You and Daddy, Bud and Sis.
I'll be with you then, forever
Then I'll give you Daddy's kiss.
