Let Them Live

let them live, let them live
for the Lord made life
it's Heaven's greatest gift
let them live, let them live
for the Lord made life
it is only his to give

You formed my innermost being
You knit me in my mother's womb
i give thanks that i'm fearfully made
how wonderful are Your works (ps 139:13-14)
You knew my name before i was born (jn 29:11)
You knew my heart before it formed
You knew the colour of my eyes
You know what a mother has inside
Father i can hear You say

You knew the colour of my hair
You knew if it'd be dark or fair
You gave me lungs to breathe Your air
You gave me love that i could share
You put the fingerprint in my hand
You gave me a mind to understand
You gave me ears so i could hear
every word You whisper in my ear
Father i can hear You say

You know what this world can't hide
though its turned its back and closed its eyes
You know every child from the dawn of time (eph 1:4-7)
i lie awake and i hear them cry (mat 2:18)
