Alexis Song

I wrote this song to the tune of Come to Jesus by Chris Rice after our baby girl was stillborn in 2004

SONG WE WROTE ABOUT ALEXIS:

Alexis Song
to the music of “Come to Jesus the untitled hymn” by Chris Rice

The wonder of a child
In her mother’s womb
As parents we were overcome with joy
We gave thanks to Jesus
We gave thanks to Jesus
We gave thanks to Jesus for life

Wednesday there was no movement
From our little child
Thursday the baby’s heart refused to beat
We prayed to Jesus
We prayed to Jesus
We prayed to Jesus she’d live

The weekend was a journey
With God the leading one
He gave us peace and renewed our faith in Him
We drew close to Jesus
We drew close to Jesus
We drew close to Jesus and praised

Late on Monday evening
We delivered our silent child
She rests in peace and God is by her side
She went to Jesus
She went to Jesus
She went to Jesus our Lord

Sad and hurting parents
We lost our little child
But we don’t fret for God is on our side
We turn to Jesus
We turn to Jesus
We turn to Jesus for peace

With her final heartbeat
She kissed the world goodbye
She went in peace and brought our faith to life
We cling to Jesus
We cling to Jesus
We cling to Jesus for strength

She’s now with Jesus
She’s now with Jesus
She’s now with Jesus, our child
