“The Survivor” by Phil Keaggy

In 1983, Phil Keaggy wrote and sang an incredibly powerful song called “The Survivor.”  It is the story of a baby who survives an abortion.

A friend on FB sent this to me the other day.  I had never heard this song.  As I listened to the music and lyrics, I wept.

My husband had never heard this song before.  When he listened – he wept.

My husband has created videos for music on youtube and does such a beautiful job. I asked him if he would work with me to make  a video for “The Survivor.” I gathered pictures and Tim did all of the work – putting it all together in video format.

Here are the lyrics:

I have heard the slander of many,
Terror on every side.
While they council together against me,
A scheme to take away my life.

I am small, concealed in this darkness,
Yearning to see the light, but I may never
Because of the heartless attempt
To take away my life.

Am I safe? The water around me
Is changing. Is it allright?
I am burning. Oh what are they doing?
They want to take away my life.

But as for me, I trust in Thee,
Oh, Lord, my times are in Your hands.
You are my God, deliver me
From the solution that they have planned.

I’m condemned, completely unwanted,
I struggle to stay inside,
Oh, my dear mother, your future is haunted,
If they succeed and take away my life.

I’m cut off, exposed in this cold room,
For love and warmth I strive, will you discard me,
Throw away or starve me,
And slowly drain away my life.

But as for me, I trust in Thee,
Oh, Lord, my times are in Your hands.
You are my God, deliver me
From the solution that they have planned.

Desperate hands reach out to embrace me,
And steal away in the night,
A gentle voice is speaking assuringly,
No one will take away your life.

Now I am one apart from the millions
Fortunate to survive.
And though I bear on my body these old wounds,
They didn’t take away my life.

But as for me, I trust in Thee,
Oh, Lord, my times are in Your hands.
You are my God, deliver me
From the solution that they have planned.

 

Brethren, pray for the little ones who have no voice.  We are their voice. Pray that Roe Vs. Wade will be overturned.

Since 1973, over 60 million babies have been murdered in their mother’s wombs.

MARANATHA!
