Consider Young Mother

Unborn Baby

Consider, young mother,before it's too late,
You've only a little while longer to wait
Till your beautiful baby will come into view
In the Image of God and the image of you...

There are those who would lay down their own lives for you,
Who would lay down their lives for your little one, too,
would you shutter your heart to your own baby's fate?
Consider, young mother, before it's too late!

Think,ere that life from your body is torn,
Your baby, like you , has a right to be born,
There's naught for you here in this chamber of death
But the cruel suffocation of God's Holy Breath
Of one who is growing in your vibrant womb,
---Don't let the abortionist make it a tomb!

Your body is youthful and throbbing with life,
And now bears another whose right to that life
Is sacred as yours--do not let it die,
Give ear to Love's whisper: "Fear not, it is I!"

Would you shutter your conscience to that baby's fate?
Consider, young mother,before it's too late!
Be guided by Him in His heaven above you,
Choose life and that Infant forever will love you!
