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.
