In the days before I even dreamed of a child And in the nights before I knew your name The Lord knew you; He meant you for me all the while And now my life will never be the same In His word He said He knit you together He planned your smile and every hair on your head His love for you is so infinite and tender He gave His son to stand in your stead You are a blessing It is an honor That the Lord has given me to you So I will cherish my wonderful blessing, For that's the work the Lord has given me to do. And though it seemed impossible to bear the time It stretched so long, seeming endless in its span When they gave me you and I finally knew that you were mine I saw it clear: the perfection of God's plan. You are a blessing It is an honor That the Lord has given me to you. So I will cherish, and remember The Lord's love for me when I look at you.
