But hold his soul and treat with infinite care

Which both give freely, transferred by thoughts and words
Which bless you both in infinite and united love.”

I held her first
And a place in my heart will always be hers

When she first smiled at me
I knew the love of a father runs deep
And I prayed that she’d find you someday
But it’s still hard to give her away
I loved her first”
