The Saints that were Never Born




For Xenia:

In Heaven with the Father, praying for us down here
Those we've never known alive but who still linger near
We know some day we'll see them in answer to their prayers
Because they've learned to love us from their Father who always cares

And we love them back and wait to see them on that morn
When we meet in Heaven the Saints that were never born

So many were not wanted and as martyrs they died
Some were not allowed to come although they tried and tried
For them the safest space on earth became a place of strife
And so God took them in his arms and gave them His eternal life

And we love them back and wait to see them on that morn
When we meet in Heaven the Saints that were never born

These Saints become our cross to bear as we travel on
As we suffer for them and always feel they're gone
And they too our blessed hope born in Christ like we
Until we're born into the life that we'll share for eternity

And we love them back and wait to see them on that morn
When we meet in Heaven the Saints that were never born
