WHAT A BABY COSTS
"How much do babies cost?" said he The other night upon my knee; And then I said: "They cost a lot; A lot of watching by a cot, A lot of sleepless hours and care, A lot of heartache and despair, A lot of fear and trying dread, And sometimes many tears are shed In payment for our babies small, But every one is worth it all. "For babies people have to pay A heavy price from day to day -- There is no way to get one cheap. Why, sometimes when they're fast asleep You have to get up in the night And go and see that they're all right. But what they cost in constant care And worry, does not half compare With what they bring of joy and bliss -- You'd pay much more for just a kiss. "Who buys a baby has to pay A portion of the bill each day; He has to give his time and thought Unto the little one he's bought. He has to stand a lot of pain Inside his heart and not complain; And pay with lonely days and sad For all the happy hours he's had. His smile is worth it all, you bet."

I once thought marriage took Just two to make a go, But now I am convinced It takes the Lord also. And not one marriage fails Where Christ is asked to enter, As lovers come together With Jesus at the center. But marriage seldom thrives And homes are incomplete Till He is welcomed there To help avoid defeat. In homes where God is first It's obvious to see, Those unions really work, For marriage still takes three.
