I wrote this a long time ago. Can't believe I missed Sanctity of Life Sunday this past week, but wanted to share this anyway.
The Sanctity of Life
So fearfully and wonderfully made are you
A precious gift from God above.
No man can fathom the care He took
Creating you by His hands out of love.
The God who knew you before you were born
Is always aware of your being.
Thank you, Father, for the little lives
You’ve given these dear little children.
Open our eyes that we may see the preciousness of life.
Fill our hearts with the love You give to every tiny new life.
“Little ones to Him belong” * are words that we all know.
Infinite love is bestowed on us all, no matter how young or how old.
For we are all God’s children whom He so skillfully fashioned with care.
Everyone is dear to Him…lift up our babies in prayer.
