A Song For New Babies And New Parents: “For All The World’s Children”

Brother and BabyWhat are your hopes and wishes for a new baby arriving here on this Earth?  Or for all little ones that are arrive into new parents arms?  When I was a new mom, I wrote this little song about welcoming a new baby and I’m thrilled to say it’s been passed around to new and expecting parents to express best wishes for a child’s new life.

How Special They Are!

Here’s the lyrics to the song:


For all the world’s children
Here’s a song and a prayer
That you’ll reach out for love
And it will always be there

That you’ll rise like the wind
And shine like the stars
And that you’ll always remember
How special you are

That you’ll always find friendship
And folks who are kind
Who can share your joys with you
And strengthen your mind

And that your home will be a place
From which the best journeys start
And that you’ll fly in your lifetime
On wings of the heart

For all the world’s children
I wish justice and peace
And a world that respects you
And your dignity

So you can rise like the moon
And shine your light far…
And always remember
How special you are
