Ten little children playing in a field
in a little town west of the city
Playing the games of boys and girls,
never aware that someone was missing
Never aware that someone was missing…

She was the first among them all,
but her days numbered so few
Years and nine months of glad expectations
There'd be joyful days spent reminiscing
So many days of glad reminiscing…

How could I mourn the loss of someone I never met?
Why have I tears in my eyes?
She may be gone but she's not forgotten:
Our own little angel who dwells in the skies.

Lullaby for Alice, rest in peace sweet little child
What would you say if I saw you?
How does it feel to rest in heav'nly hands?

The crib was so empty that fateful day
Baby clothes laid on the bed
Shattered dreams, a mother's broken heart
sadly aware the child was missing
Sadly aware the child was missing…

She had a halo right from the start
And the glow of heavenly light.
God had a place for her set aside
He gave her angel wings from the beginning
She got her angel wings from the beginning…
