Lovingly
She carried him
With joyful sighs
And soulful hymns
Gentle songs for kicking limbs

But he would never sing
Too soon taken
Upon soft angel’s wings

But she was given a second chance
To embrace the circumstance
And to conceive another child

If you were the one to fill his place
Would you remember him with grace?
Would you wear his smile on your face?

A parent’s fear
A somber din
Crying voices
Speed and gin
Struck the car your son was in

No one could have survived
But kind blessings
Rained down upon their lives

And he was given a second chance
To embrace the circumstance
And to forgive the reckless one

If you were the father in such strife
How would you thank God for his life?
How would you hold him by your side?

Well I am the father of that lucky boy
And I’m the younger brother of that stillborn child
And I’ve been given a second chance
Yeah a second chance
O’ Lord

Loving and kind
Filled with goodness
The sweetest woman
You’ll ever find
But fortune can sometimes be blind

And even with our prayers
Grief may rest upon us
With too few spared

But she was given a second chance
To embrace the circumstance
To laugh again and dance

If she were your lover and your wife
How would you thank God for her life?
How would you share the rest of time?

Well I am the father of that lucky boy
And I’m the younger brother of that stillborn child
I’m the husband of my darling one
And I’ve been given a second chance
Yeah a second chance
O’ Lord
