Let Me Live

LET ME LIVE
by Pat Boone

I had a dream the other night
So unusual, so profound, so troubling
That I woke up trembling, in tears.

In my dream I heard a child’s voice
Speaking to me almost in a whisper
But full of primal joy at being newly alive
I felt deeply the child’s reverence and awe
At the discovery of it’s own existence
And I shared in the excitement.

Then I heard another voice – and another –
And soon there seemed to be thousands,
millions of children, all in various stages
of development, all grateful for life – and
all singing the same urgent chorus, the
same fervent plea – for, though each and
every one of those children was already
experiencing LIFE, not one had yet been
born.

1st CHILD

I’m one month old
I’m very small
I feel me growing every day
In this warm dark place

My heart is the biggest part of me
And it’s beating!
I’m so glad to be alive
So glad
To be alive

Chorus
Let me live
Let me walk into the sunshine
Let me live
Feel my mother’s arms around me
Feel my father’s love surround me
Be a part of God’s creation
Let me live

2nd CHILD

Fingers
And toes
My own mouth
My own lips
And I’m two months old today
My heart is beating fast
And I feel another heart
Big and strong
Somewhere, everywhere around me
Is it my mother?

3rd CHILD

I’m three months old
And my arms and legs
Have real bones
I’m growing
And kicking too!
Can you feel it?
I can turn my head
I can squint and frown and make a fist
See I can curl my toes
And I think my mother knows I’m here now
I’m alive!

I’m alive!

I woke up then,
I knew I was hearing something real
Thousands of unborn children were
Singing to me from their mothers wombs
They’re not just mindless bits of flesh
There HUMAN BEINGS; all ready in touch
With their Mothers, with God, with LIFE
They deserve to LIVE!!!

Chorus

Let me live
Let me walk into the sunshine
Let me live
Feel my mother’s arms around me
Feel my father’s love surround me
Be a part of God’s creation
Let me live.
