Glory Baby

During our early days of grieving the death of our unborn baby a friend quoted some lines from the song Glory Baby. It is a touching song and I'd like to share the words with you.

Watermark - Glory Baby
print these lyrics

Glory baby you slipped away as fast as we could say
You were growing, what happened dear?
You disappeared on us
Heaven will hold you before we do
Heaven will keep you safe until we're home with you...
Until we're home with you...

Miss you everyday
Miss you in every way
But we know there's a
Day when we will hold you
We will hold you
You'll kiss our tears away
When we're home to stay
Can't wait for the day when we will see you
We will see you
But baby let sweet Jesus hold you
'till mom and dad can hold you...
You'll just have heaven before we do
You'll just have heaven before we do

Sweet little babies, it's hard to
Understand it 'cause we're hurting
We are hurting
But there is healing
And we know we're stronger people through the growing
And in knowing-
That all things work together for our good
And God works His purposes just like He said He would...
Just like He said He would...

I can't imagine heaven's lullabies
And what they must sound like
But I will rest in knowing, heaven is your home
And it's all you'll ever know...all you'll ever know...

I pray that my baby is basking in the glory of God. I pray Jesus' arms are holding my child until we get to heaven. I also pray that if you've experienced a loss like this that these words will give you comfort as they did for us.
