Glory Baby by Watermark

What do you think?

‘Glory Baby’ was written by Christy and Nathan Nockels, a married couple who had experienced 2 miscarriages in quick succession.

They started writing a song about their pain, as a healing process, but didn’t get very far until she discovered she was pregnant again. She put her faith in God, completed the song ‘Glory Baby’. The good news is her third pregnancy went full term and they are now parents of three children. 

As Christy said in an interview “In 1999 and 2000, Nathan and I experienced two miscarriages pretty much back to back, about seven or eight months apart,” says Christy in a new video on the Desiring God ministry’s website. “Of course it was our first try at having children, and there’s a lot of fear that starts to come around that, because you think if there’s something wrong with my body… am I ever going to be able to have kids.”

Lyrics

Glory baby, you slipped away
As fast as we could say baby, baby
You were growing, what happened dear,
You disappeared on us baby, baby
Heaven will hold you before we do
Heaven will keep you safe 
Until we’re home with you 
Until we’re home with you
We miss you everyday, miss you in every way
But we know there’s a day when we will hold you, we will hold you
And you’ll kiss our tears away, when we’re home to stay
We can’t wait for the day when we will see you, we will see you
But baby let sweet Jesus hold you, until mom and dad can hold you
You’ll just have heaven before we do
You’ll just have heaven before we do
Sweet little baby, it’s hard to understand it
‘Cause we are hurting, we are hurting
But there is healing, and we know we’re stronger people
Through the growing, and in knowing
All things work together for our good
And God works his purposes
Just like he said he would, just like he said he would
We miss you everyday, miss you in every way
But we know there’s a day when we will hold you, we will hold you
And you’ll kiss our tears away, when we’re home to stay
We can’t wait for the day when we will see you, we will see you
But baby let sweet Jesus hold you, until mom and dad can hold you
You’ll just have heaven before we do
You’ll just have heaven before we do
I can’t imagine Heaven’s lullabies 
And what they must sound like
But I will rest in knowing
Heaven is your home 
And it’s all you’ll ever know, all you’ll ever know
We miss you everyday, miss you in every way
But we know there’s a day when we will hold you, we will hold you
And you’ll kiss our tears away, when we’re home to stay
We can’t wait for the day when we will see you, we will see you
But baby let sweet Jesus hold you, until mom and dad can hold you
You’ll just have heaven before we do
You’ll just have heaven before we do
