Precious Flower

A beautiful funeral poem for a baby or child from a mother or father. Suitable for a religious funeral service for a child.

Precious Flower

Lord take my tiny precious flower

Who had no time to bloom

Lift her gently in your arms

And find a little room

In the Heavenly garden

That you planted high above

Then care for her and keep her safe

Within your perfect love

Find a little corner

In a quiet sheltered place

Where she can feel the healing sun

Caress her lovely face

Give her the tender caring

That I can no longer give

Hold her with your gentle hands

And let her frangrance live

The dearest and the lovliest

Of flowers that ever grew

My precious gift from

Heaven I return, dear Lord, to you
