Seeing Them Born - Song Lyrics

Seeing Them Born - Copyright 2006 Charles Sjolander
Seeing Them Born

Written 1995

Verse 1:
the safety of home has been robbed from us
and most of us don't trust what's happening 
hiding in hospital waiting rooms 
is no way to celebrate a new life

Refrain:
oh the joy of being there
oh the joy of seeing them born
oh the gentle loving care
oh the joy of seeing them born
seeing them born

Verse 2:
trusting ourselves and staying home
we gain back the power of responsibility
in some ways it's harder but well worth the pain
just to look deep into your babies eyes

Refrain.

Verse 3:
resting snugly in mother's arms
what better way to say hello
all the pharmaceutical weaponry
is no replacement for a mother's love

Refrain.
