Somebody's baby went home today,
And somebody grieved at it's going
Somebody hoped it had come to stay
And somebody's tears are flowing.

Somebody longs for the form again
Only one moment to hold it,
Somebody thinks it would case the
hearts pain.
Just once again to enfold it,

Somebody's arms are empty and free
Aimlessly, uselessly lying,
Somebody trying so prayerfully now
To still the lonely heart crying.

Somebody's baby is glad it was born
Praises ring down thru the ages,
Somebody's baby knew little this
Now it knows more than the ages.
