"Elisabeth" as written by Liz Rose and Kim Mclean....
Namesake to Elisabeth
Her daddy's pride and joy
Baptized in her mama's tears
Soon after she was born

'Cause the doctor said
She'd never live to
See her sweet sixteen
It's a miracle that

She beat those odds
And there's still no promise
She will see tomorrow
It makes me wonder

How life can give someone
So much and take
So much away
Ooh

Elisabeth
You're a teacher
You're a saint
And I'm so glad

You came to us
Elisabeth
You make the world
A better place

With the kindness of
Your smile and your love
And your beauty
With live on and on

Elisabeth
Elisabeth

She might not ever marry
Or hold a baby of her own
Things we all take for granted
Are the things she
May never know

She believes there's
Always hope
And that's all she really has
She walks through
Life with passion
And with dignity and class

And when she cries
She cries in silence
But never for herself
She cries for everybody else

Everybody else
Elisabeth
You're a teacher
You're a saint

And I'm so glad
You came to us
Elisabeth
You make the world

A better place
With the kindness of
Your smile and your love
And your beauty
With live on and on

I'm so glad you came to us
Elisabeth
You make the world
A better place

With the kindness of
Your smile and your love
And your beauty
With live on and on
