On Miscarriage: by Watermark

The line that caught me initially was "You'll have heaven before we do."


Glory Baby by Watermark

Glory baby you slipped away as fast as we could say baby…baby..
You were growing, what happened dear?
You disappeared on us baby…baby..
Heaven will hold you before we do
Heaven will keep you safe until we’re home with you…
Until we’re home with you…

Miss you everyday
Miss you in every way
But we know there’s a
day when we will hold you
We will hold you
You’ll kiss our tears away
When we’re home to stay
Can’t wait for the day when we will see you
We will see you
But baby let sweet Jesus hold you
‘till mom and dad can hold you…
You’ll just have heaven before we do
You’ll just have heaven before we do

Sweet little babies, it’s hard to
understand it ‘cause we’re hurting
We are hurting
But there is healing
And we know we’re stronger people through the growing
And in knowing-
That all things work together for our good
And God works His purposes just like He said He would…
Just like He said He would…

I can’t imagine heaven’s lullabies
and what they must sound like
But I will rest in knowing, heaven is your home
And it’s all you’ll ever know…all you’ll ever know…

  1. These are good lyrics. They sound like someone who is dealing with their pain, like they are honest about the hurt, and finding some comfort in the eternal security of their child.
    I imagine it takes an open and beaten-up heart to be receptive to them.
    I have a friend who lost a child this way. She can't talk about it, nor can her husband. Neither can respond when I muster enough courage to ask her about it, except to say, "We just don't think about it."
    Though I don't want them to hurt, I pray they will find the healing that comes from the suffering of grieving. I hope one day they will let me grieve with them.
    Of course I pray for them, but I am also hoping that as I become more vulnerable and open with them about my own stuff (though nothing like losing a baby), they will begin to open up. At least (actually, at most) feel that they can be more vulnerable with God.
    Is there anything else I can do for her do you think?

  2. I'm working on the material. That's why I've begun to post stuff. There are different responses to miscarriage. Some people don't continue to hurt for very long. Some don't seem to hurt at all. Some seem to never work it out. Some of us just keep dealing hoping for greater resolve. Maybe some of the posts will assist you with your friends. I'm also compiling a CD of music on the theme. I'll let you know how it goes.
