O How I Wish It Weren’t This Way

O God, How I wish it weren’t this way
She’s so small, so sweet, so precious this day;

Her smile so tender and touch so warm
She’s no doubt at fault for making cuteness the norm;

But I know that someday she’ll mature and grow
And this precious time together will melt like the snow;

And all the bouncing and rocking and lifting her up
Will soon turn to school and friends filling her cup

O God, How I wish it weren’t this way
That I’d have to say goodbye to this baby someday

O God, How I wish it weren’t this way
That she be born in a world where pain seems to reign;

She’s too innocent and precious to me, O Lord
I can’t fathom the idea she’d endure sin’s scorn

See she’s protected and grows to be strong
And that she’d be a light despite all that’s gone wrong;

But most of all God that she’d come to know You
As You’re the only one who can carry her through;

O God, How I wish it weren’t this way
But I’m beyond thankful You’re with her always
