there is a life that grows inside you

you claim it is of your body yet it is not

you and one other began what lives

by grace of God within your womb

you and one other, united, as one

began a life, by grace of God, a life!

spirit fusing body to its soul

to live, to grow, to seek its Maker

individual, dependent, helpless

needing those who hold its life

to care, to nurture, to help it grow

and though merely man I must wonder

at your crazy notion of selfness

that would have the cake and eat it


at what point does this stain upon your life

you claim your private curse

become a treasured much loved infant

youd joyful boast to Heaven


There is a Life that Grows Inside You
