By the way, the picture above is of Michael and Molly, two of my three children. You wouldn't believe how they inspire me . . . unless you have children of your own, of course. (Wow, do I sound old!)
Before I Formed You in the Womb I Knew You
1. Before I formed you in the Womb I knew you.
Conceived in sin, My Word of life still drew you.
Bought with a price, you are My holy treasure,
Loved beyond measure.
2. Lo, your first parents I made in My image,
And though their fall that kinship they did damage,
I made a promise: My Son would redeem them.
Thus I esteem them.
3. You are a temple of the Holy Spirit.
You are My own; the Kingdom you inherit.
You are My child and I your holy Father--
I and no other.
4. All life is Mine; I jealously possess it.
I gave you life, and with My Word I bless it.
My Word shall speak to unborn generations
Of their salvation.
