Jesus' Little Lamb

I am Jesus' little lamb,
Ever glad at heart I am;

For my Shepherd gently guides me,
Knows my need, and well provides me,

Loves me every day the same,
Even calls me by my name.

Day by day, at home away,
Jesus is my Staff and Stay.

When I hunger, Jesus feeds me,
Into pleasant pastures leads me;

When I thirst He bids me go
Where the quiet waters flow.

Who so happy as I am,
Even now, the Shepherd's lamb?

And when my short life is ended,
By His angel host attended

He shall fold me to His breast,
There within His arms to rest.

Truly, the most joy-filled baptism I have ever seen. 

Welcome to the family, Samantha Love. I still can't believe God chose me to be your mommy. I've got the best job on earth. 


  1. What a blessed way to start the day! Rejoicing with you and Samantha!

  2. loved it...thanks again Sam and Grace for making my day

  3. I love it! The video gave me goosebumps when we watched it in church on Sunday. The photos are precious. I love Samantha's gorgeous dress. Welcome to God's family, Samantha Love!

  4. PRICELESS!!!!!

  5. I'm crying tears of joy, dear friend. This is God at work in baptism. I'm rejoicing with you. Welcome to the Lord's family, Samantha. Today, God has indeed written His name on your heart.

  6. What an awesome occasion! I can't believe how much Sam has changed in just a few short weeks...it is so obvious that she is absolutely thriving with your love!

  7. Jesus said 'Suffer little children to come unto me' and he meant little children like Sam especially. Many times we tend to look at the cute, 'normal' children and forget that kids like Sam exist, that they too are a part of God's wonderful creation, just the way the are, not the way we think they ought to be.

    I've been to several baptisms, where people stood around solemnly. I have never seen such a truly joy filled baptism as you described. Your pastor is so kind and you are such a great mom Grace. Sam looks like a little angel in her dress.

    You may perhaps hate hearing this Grace, but you are doing something extraordinary. Not by being a mom to Sam, but by living out your faith.

    God bless you and Sam always.

  8. Tears of joy at seeing the joy in this video. Thank you so much for sharing this with us, Grace!

  9. What a glorious moment! How joyous that you have given your sweet daughter not only a family, but the miracle of Baptism. Loved every second of watching this precious child of God enter into her eternal family!!
