Hand Me Down Eternity

Your the very best of her

Your the very best of me

Perfectly knit together

By our creator

Sitting in a hospital cell

Took 3 weeks and a diagnosis to tell

First time parents your son isn’t well

If we didn’t have You

We wouldn’t have the other two

It’s because of you

The love of two became a few

Our legacy is what we leave behind

The few whoopings that kept us inline

Laying in my bed crying

Only to hear a sobbing single mother

Trying to hold it together

Because she wants us to have better

Here we are now passing the same things down

Love and compassion come with discipline

Let me tell you the rest

Trying to get this off my chest

Doctors giving us our “options”

Scared us into taking a test

Risking putting you to rest? No!

Thankfully we trust in more then meds

In the Lord we have peace and rest

Trust in God and He’ll give you the best

If we didn’t have You

We wouldn’t have the other two

It’s because of you

The love of two became a few

Our legacy is what we leave behind

Liam, Logan and Lincoln will shine

Let the light of the Lord keep you inline

Patience, wait for your time

Growing up too fast

You might forget the past

Remember the hugs of your mother

The tough love of your father

Because we want you to have better

Here we are now passing the same things down

Love and compassion come with discipline

Love the Lord with all you are

And you will receive your heavenly crown

The Lil’lean’s are fearfully and wonderfully

Made perfect

By the very hands of our Father

Why bother with doctors

We’re fed with living water

Our roots run deep

Our branches bear fruit

A life without Jesus would mean

A life without you!

Still keeping the faith

The Lil’lean’s
