New words to Away in a Manger

Our foster daughter J has had a really rough ride recently for various reasons I can't blog about and although she spends a lot of energy "trying not to think about it" she is very deeply hurt.

Which is why it was even more poignant tonight when she said she'd just heard the words of the last verse of Away in a manger and they were about her - "Bless all the dear children - the children in care." Nearly brought a tear to my eye and I'll never sing the carol again without remembering J's courage.
