From graceful lilies pure and white,
God fashioned lovely skin,
Forget-me-nots he chose for eyes,
Then formed your baby chin.
He took a tulip bright and red --
'Twas one that did not fade;
A softer, sweeter little mouth
Before was never made.
Another flower next He used --
A rosebud, pink and fair;
Touched it to your dimpled cheeks
And bade it blossom there.
Then with His magic fingers picked
Two morning glories white;
Curled and shaped your little ears,
Soon they were fastened tight.
That crowning bit of golden down
Will soon become your hair;
He gathered pollen from the flowers,
And sprinkled it with care.
For dainty little fingers dear
And precious, tiny toes,
He used slender daisy frills;
A snowdrop made your nose.
This world and all within it
He created here for man;
But Baby was "God's Masterpiece"
Since time and life began!

This is the most beautiful verse ever written in my opinion for the birth of a new baby, to me it say's it all. And I think it is sad that it is not on sale today.

It is very beautiful! Thanks for your comment. I did not know it was not for sale today.

I wish this verse was available in the stores today, it was one I received on the birth of each of my children and the only card I can say I still recall the beautiful verse.

Hallmark Cards first brought this out on a Birth card in 1956, so I believe.
I have not seen this particular verse on a card since around 1983 when my daughter was born. There is a similar version but it does not a candle to the original
and I think Hallmark would make a killing on sales if this were to be available again? Come on Hallmark, make my day, lets flood the shops with it again, please?
