Children, You Are So Beautiful
written and produced by Dr. Deborah Isom
This is the musical prelude: reflection
(An adult narrates this part during the musical prelude)
Children are very special people
They bring us joy-but sometimes they bring us pain
But nevertheless we love them just the same
Because they are reflections of ourselves
Of our hopes of our dreams and of our past and present schemes
So today, we as parents and teachers
want to tell our children that there is a better way
And that tomorrow is a better day inspite of what they say-
So children, we want you to keep on keeping on-
because we love you-
And so does God...
