David Burke writes:
This song came to me in a special way, through God, of course, but I was thinking beforehand of all the things that are being said nowadays about the unborn having a voice. An unborn child is still a person and thus has a right to his or her life. We parents do not have the choice to change that. We used our choice when we enabled God to create this child, and that's where our options in that regard stopped and where our responsibilities began. So when I considered unborn children having a voice in their destiny, I envisioned these children speaking out in song and communicating with an angel about life on earth, as well as eternal life with our Almighty Creator.
We Want to See the World Lyrics
(A) - Angel (UC) - Unborn Children
(A) Children of God's love. (UC) Who are you who sings to us?
(A) I am the angel of your lives. (UC) Tell us more about our lives.
(A) You have been created by our God. (UC) Tell us more about our God.
(A) He gave you life upon the Earth. (UC) We want to know about the Earth.
(A) Earth has flowers and waterfalls. (UC) Tell us more; please tell us all.
(A) And raindrops that fall upon the trees. (UC) These are things we want to see.
(A) And rainbows that shine as bright as stars. (UC) Can you tell us where they are?
(A) Where snow-covered mountains reach the sky. (UC) We want to know about the sky.
(A) As I hear your words, I know you want to see the world, and I can feel your little hearts
just want the love that they deserve. So now we lift our voice and
pray the whole world will rejoice when we sing ...
Holy gracious Jesus Christ, we kneel and thank You for our lives, and pray that every unborn
child will see their parents' loving smile. May every mother realize that You will guard their
children's lives, and every father know the truth -- that children are a gift from You.
(UC) We want to see the world, like other boys and girls. We want to feel the love
from our mothers and our fathers.
(UC) Can we talk about the sky? (A) It's God home of eternal life.
(UC) Does it have flowers and waterfalls? (A) Heaven has all that's wonderful.
(UC) Will we ever see it with our eyes? (A) If you believe in Jesus Christ.
(UC) And what does He want from all of us? (A) To live by His word and share your love.
(UC) Dear angel of our lives, we want a chance to see the sky, so can we say a little
prayer and tell God all the reasons why. So now we lift our voice and
pray the whole world will rejoice as we sing ... (Repeat Refrain)
