Hug Him Once for Me

I'm sure this song must contain bad theology, but I have to hold on to the idea that the Lord is holding him.  He was so young and little and was used to be held, coddled, and comforted.  I could go crazy wondering how he spends the time now...



Lyrics:
I asked you Lord, you answered
A little one you gave
The hardest part I never knew
Was that little one you'd take
But Lord I trust you now
I know that you are good
And Jesus, I was wondering if you would...

Hug him once for me
Hold him up real close
Let him sit upon your knee
And tell him all the things we'd teach him about you
Whisper in his ear one more simple truth
Tell him that you love him
And that we love him too

Waiting here right now Lord
It seems so hard to do
Longing just to hold him
Like other mothers do
I know that you are faithful
Your hand of grace I've known
But I ask you in the meantime, until you call me home

Hug him once for me
Hold him up real close
Let him sit upon your knee
And tell him all the things we'd teach him about you
Whisper in his ear one more simple truth
Tell him that you love him
And that we love him too

And when the trumpet sounds Lord,
Your face I long to see
And now I've one more reason to wait expectantly
And when I get to heaven
And see all you have done
I know that I will understand
And to him I will run

I'll hug him once for me
I'll hold him up real close
He'll sit upon my knee
And tell me all the things you've taught him about you
He'll whisper in his ear one more simple truth
He'll tell me that he loves you
And that he loves me too

He'll tell me that he loves you
And Lord, I love you too
