Mary, Can I Hold Your Baby? (Ivory)
Mary, Can I hold your baby? Can I hold him close to me?
Can I cherish and adore him, Can I through eternity?
Mary, can I hold your baby as I journey through this life?
Will he know how much I need him in my weakness, sin and strife?
Mary, can I hold him close to me?
Can I cherish and adore him through eternity?
Mary, can I hold your baby, can my poor heart feel his love?
Will his spirit hear my whisper as I search for God above?
Mary, can I hold your baby, Can I learn to do his will?
Can I serve him without ceasing, and I all his laws fulfill?
Mary, can I hold your baby. Can I show him to the world?
By my very word and action will his banner be unfurled?
