This is a piece of literature I wrote September 25,1985. I made it into a song in April of 1991. This piece was given to me, I believe divinely, after a severe depression that I was having due to the guilt of having three abortions. It took me back to three stages in my life and how I felt at the time and I received a healing in my soul afterwards.

How Wrong Was I

I thought no one would ever know

To stop a life before it could grow.

A baby now would never do

There's so much life to live.

I'm young right now, I need to be free

I can't have a baby stopping me.

Life's too short and I haven't got

The time or the love to give.

Again there's life inside of me

This time I'd want this child to be,

But I'm all alone and so afraid.

I fear I have no choice to make.

Out of sight, out of mind

I know that I will heal with time

If I just forget I will be alright

And I won't cry anymore

With child again, oh, no, not me

Lord, why are You punishing me

I haven't the strength to take a stand

And have a baby without a man

How wrong was I to think that I could be God

And choose whether this one lived or died

The pain I suffered never went away

Till I begged the Lord to heal.

The grace of God, so full and free

In Jesus Christ, He pardoned me

A murderer I was but am no more

He cleared me of all my sin.

Blessed beyond my hopes and dreams.

Six beautiful children He has given me

Three in heaven I will someday see

Until then I will patiently await

My heart Christ came to bind it up

He bore my grief, my sorrow and pain

I feel that now I can really live.

His truth has set me free.
