I can't think of any for use during the service, but I'd think that "Blessed Be the Tie that Binds" would be a good benedictory hymn for the end of the service.

Good luck & congratulations!

Hi there!

Steven Curtis Chapman has 2 that would fit. The first he actually wrote for his wife but it would fit. It's called I will be here and is on a CD he released in 1989 I think. Can't remember the name.

The second is on his new Declaration CD and he wrote it for his daughter he adopted from China and it's called When Love Finds a Way.

Good luck!

Thought you might want to read the lyrics.

When Love Takes You In

I know youve heard the stories
But they all sound too good to be true
Youve heard about a place called home
But there doesnt seem to be one for you
So one more night you cry yourself to sleep
And drift off to a distant dream

Where love takes you in and everything changes
A miracle starts with the beat of a heart
When love takes you home and says you belong here
The loneliness ends and a new life begins
When love takes you in

And somewhere while youre sleeping
Someone else is dreaming too
Counting down the days until
They hold you close and say I love you
And like the rain that falls into the sea
In a moment what has been is lost in what will be

When love takes you in everything changes
A miracle starts with the beat of a heart

And this love will never let you go
There is nothing that could ever cause this love to lose its hold

When love takes you in everything changes
A miracle starts with the beat of a heart
When love takes you home and says you belong here
The loneliness ends and a new life begins
When love takes you in it takes you in for good
When love takes you in

Sorry about getting the name a little off. The mommy memory you know.

I saw the words once again and just started welling up (again)!

Sigh!

I just typed these into our placement ceremony program so I'd thought I'd share these words, too.

Let us know how it goes and what you decide!


I Will Be Here Steven Curtis Chapman

Tomorrow morning if you wake up and the sun does not appear
I, I will be here.
If in the dark we lose sight of love, hold my hand and have no fear
Cause I, I will be here

I will be here when you feel like being quiet
When you need to speak your mind, I will listen
And I will be here when the laughter turns to crying
Through the winning, losing and trying, well be together
Cause I will be here

Tomorrow morning if you wake up and the future is unclear
I, I will be here
As sure as seasons are made for change, our lifetimes are made for years
So I, I will be here

I will be here and you can cry on my shoulder
When the mirror tells us were older, I will hold you
And I will be here to watch you grow in beauty
And tell you all the things you mean to me
I will be here

I will be true to the promise I have made
To you and to the one who gave you to me.

church song

We sing "I'll lift you up on Eagle's wings"
for a closing song and it would fit. I'm not sure who it's written by...

"Blest be the tie that binds" sounds like a great benediction.

"I'll lift you up on eagle's wings" sounds great. Does anyone know who wrote this song or the words..that would be great.

Keep praying everyone that Nov. 15th I may become officially the mother of my little girl. Nothing may go wrong in the court and the judgment may be in my favor. Our God is an unfailing God. He has brought me this far.

Thank you all for your support and encouragement.

Isn't it exciting planning for your baby's dedication even though you've never seen her in person...it's almost like giving birth..until you give birth..you are only imagining the precious one growing in you. The only difference is here she is growing in my heart.

this one is called "on eagle's wings" i'm not sure if it's the one you're looking for. it's by Michael Joncas. the refrain is :
And he will raise you up on eagle's wings
bear you on the breath of dawn
make you to shine like the sun
and hold you in the palm of his hand.

if that sounds like the one you're looking for let me know and i'll give you the rest of the words.

I know it might sound silly to you at first, but what about the song Phil Collins did for the movie Tarzan "you'll be in my heart" ?the words to that are awsome.

I am crazy about "Adoption...The Songs You Love". I purchased it in the Spring while in the "waiting" stage. Now, I rock my five month old to it at night and realize how very blessed I am. She too loves it and the wording is quite touching.

Thank you so much for responding. I have been waiting to hear from someone about the CD. As soon as I log off, I am going to go ahead and order the CD.

Keep praying. We have sent in our immigration papers and hoping to bring our little girl home by mid January.

God is good.

VIO,
You and your daughter are in our prayers! Now you've got me in search of a special song for our babys baptism.

January is just around the corner!! Keep busy and it will fly.

Yes, God is good!!

A song for your child's baptism

I was looking for the perfect song for my son's baptism. Of course, I found this CD the week after his big day. The title is "Lullabies - Close Your Eyes." The song "This Child" is amazing! The song begins:

"This child is everything we've ever dreamed,
This child, reflecting your majesty,
Lord, we've been so blessed we promise to do our best.

This child, part of your master plan,
So muich we don't understand,
Help us do Your will and seek Your guiding hand.

Chorus
This child, Your child
A gift from heaven's heart,
We pray today for wisdom from the start.
May we always be seeking You faithfully,
Lord, we come to dedicate to You.

This child, with so much of life to learn,
A road with choices at every turn,
As he sees us live, may we show the love You give.

This child, Your child
A gift from heaven's heart,
We pray today for wisdom from the start,
May we always be seeking you faithfully,

This child's journey of life has just begun
We pray that he finds life in Your only Son.

Chorus:

The music to this song is amazing! I was trying it out at a Christian bookstore with headphones on. It brought me to tears. I believe each of our children and all children of this world are chosen by God for a purpose in His kingdom. I feel priveledged to be a mother and yet, I try to keep focused on the fact that my son is God's son, chosen for His work. I feel it is my responsibility to do everything I can to nurture and guide Him to find His purpose in his Father's kingdom.

Good luck finding a song,
Gayle
