Death of a Little Child
Dr. J. Vernon McGee
The ministry of "Death of a Little Child" is reflected in the
From Seminole, Texas
"I have just finished reading your booklet, 'Death of a Little
Child.' We lost our nineteen-month-old baby girl in October.
After reading your book, which was loaned to me by a neighbor,
I can understand more fully why our child was taken. The most
encouragement I got was that someday I can hold in my arms
again my baby. Heaven is a place now, a real place."
From Minneapolis, Minnesota
"In September the Lord chose to take to Himself our darling
seven-year-old Eric. He was killed two blocks from home when
he stepped out in front of a parked bread truck into the path of
an oncoming car. How our hearts ache for him, but how wonderful
to know he is at home with the Lord. The day following Eric's
homegoing, your book, 'Death of a Little Child,' was sent to me
by one of my very dear friends. What a blessing it was to my husband
and myself at that time."
From Norwalk, California
"We just lost our little four-year-old girl with leukemia. The booklet,
'Death of a Little Child,' was given to us by a church member.
We found comfort in it for ourselves, but especially for our sevenyear-

of a child. She can't remember the title, only the author. She received
the book five years ago when her baby passed away and
read it until it literally fell apart. We would so appreciate any

A sweet small lamb, so lately mine
I scarce can keep my arms from reaching out
As though to snatch her back from Thine.
These arms of mine are wonted so to her, dear Lord,
They curved about her little form
So sweetly, and from dawn of time my breast was meant
To be her pillow, soft and warm.
What does one do with aching arms and empty hours,
With silent rooms, and dragging days?
The things I knew before will not avail me now -
Teach me new lessons and new ways.
Take Thou, I pray, these idle folded hands of mine
Which can no longer busied be
With dear, familiar tasks for her…. In mercy, Lord,
Fill hands and heart with tasks for Thee!

information you might be able to give us as to how we might
obtain this book."
From Fresno, California
"I think it's only fair to let you know that your little book,
'Death of a Little Child,' has done it again. On Christmas day
my husband's sister lost her twenty-four-hour-old baby son. He
was much wanted, and there cannot be another. Both parents were
just crushed. We wrote to your office, asking that the booklet be
sent to them. In due time a letter came from them, thanking us
for the copy, and saying that they both had received Christ as
Savior. Through their witness my husband's two other sisters
have also been saved."
