This song was written by a mother (along with her husband) who carried her baby 34 weeks knowing the baby would not live soon after birth. I may never listen to it again because it is so hard for me to listen to without getting crazy emotional, but the words are so close to my heart. They are so close to the thoughts continually racing through my head. So, anyways, I thought I would share it with those of you who haven’t heard it.

I Will Carry You

There were photographs I wanted to take
Things I wanted to show you
Sing sweet lullabies, wipe your teary eyes
Who could love you like this?

People say that I am brave but I’m not
Truth is I’m barely hanging on
But there’s a greater story
Written long before me
Because He loves you like this

So I will carry you
While your heart beats here
Long beyond the empty cradle
Through the coming years
I will carry you
All my life
And I will praise the One Who’s chosen me
To carry you

Such a short time
Such a long road
All this madness
But I know
That the silence
Has brought me to His voice
And He says…

I’ve shown her photographs of time beginning
Walked her through the parted seas
Angel lullabies, no more teary eyes
Who could love her like this?

I will carry you
While your heart beats here
Long beyond the empty cradle
Through the coming years
I will carry you
All your life
And I will praise the One Who’s chosen Me
To carry you

One comment on “I Will Carry You

  • Natasha, Thank you for sharing your emotions and opening your soul with us. To open your heart is such a brave thing to do sister. Don't doubt for one second that Christ doesn't sit with His hand on your precious shoulder when you cry “Father, isn't there any other way?” Remember, He asked God His Father the same question. He loves you tenderly and He understands. Praying for you and your family. Love, Maria
