Adoption Song Lyrics: From God’s Arms to My Arms to Yours

“So many wrong decisions in my past, I’m not quite sure
If I can ever hope to trust my judgement anymore
But lately I’ve been thinking, ’cause it’s all I’ve had to do
And in my heart I feel that I should give this child to you

(And) Maybe, you can tell your baby
When you love him so that he’s been loved before
By someone who delivered your son
From God’s arms to my arms to yours

And if you choose to tell him and if he wants to know
How the one who gave him life could bear to let him go
Just tell him there were sleepless nights
I prayed and paced the floors
I knew the only peace I’d find is if this child was yours

And maybe, you can tell your baby
When you love him so that he’s been loved before
By someone who delivered your son
From God’s arms to my arms to yours

Now I know you don’t have to do this, but could you kiss him once for me
The first time that he ties his shoes or falls and skins his knee,
And could you hold him twice as long when he makes his first mistake
And tell him that he’s not alone, sometimes that’s all it takes
I know how much he’ll ache

This may not be the answer for another girl like me
And I’m not on a soapbox saying how we all should be
I’m just trusting in my feelings and I’m trusting God above
And I’m trusting you can give this baby both his mother’s love

And maybe, you can tell your baby
When you love him so that he’s been loved before
By someone who delivered your son
From God’s arms to my arms to yours

From God’s arms

To my arms

To yours”
