"Prayer for This Child" by Sara Groves (for Baby Gudkov)

I do not know how I am to pray for this child
As a mother, I don't want my baby denied
But in the waiting, in the waiting, I learned
To hold on to the heart of God

Every instinct in me wants to shield him from pain
Take the arrows of misery, heartache, and blame
But in the sorrow, in the sorrow, I learned
To hold on to the heart of God

I only have two eyes; be All-Seeing
I only have two hands; be Everywhere
I do not know enough; be All-Knowing
I give my baby up into Your care

I do not know how I am to pray for this child
Want to guard him from everything wicked and wild
But in the trial, in the trial, I learned
To hold on
And in the trial, in your trials, you'll learn
To hold on to the heart of God
