Enough to Let You Go

Sending a son on a mission is an exhilarating experience! Nothing is more rewarding—or painful. "Enough to Let You Go" expresses many of the thoughts that go through a mother's head as she prepares to send her beloved son out into the world to serve a mission for the Lord—an experience that she knows is a great opportunity for her son and something she desperately wants for him, while at the same time feeling as though a knife is piercing her heart.

Lyrics
Enough to Let You Go
Father in Heaven had His children around Him.
Life was good with His family around Him.
Yet, He wanted more for us to share
Than we could gain by staying there.
So He sent us here to Earth
Where we could grow and learn,
And life in Heaven would never be the same,
For many of us would not return.
I think our Father would have liked to hold us
There where He could shape and mold us.
He knew if He did, we could not grow.
Our Father loved us enough to let us go.

He loved us this much and more.
He loved us the whole world twice o'er.
He loved us more than life, itself and so
He loved us enough to let us go.

Just yesterday I would rock and would hold you.
Tiny babe, I must teach and must mold you.
I found that I loved you more each day,
But time would steal my babe away.
When you were a child, we played
A favorite game of yours.
No matter how much I said I loved you,
You vowed you loved me that much and more.
I know that if we were to play that game now,
Your professions would sound lame now.
If you listen closely, you will see
I really love you as much as you love me.

I love you this much and more.
I love you the whole world twice o'er.
I love you more than life, itself and so
I love you enough to let you go.

I love to have all my children around me.
Life's been good with my family around me,
But you are a man now, mostly grown.
You need to be out on your own,
So I'll send you far away
Where you can serve the Lord,
And you will seek His guidance as you strive
To share His great love and teach His word.
People are searching for the truth you'll bring them.
They all need the light you'll bring them.
Though you leaving brings such pain, I know
The time is right now for me to let you go.

I love you this much and more.
I love you the whole world twice o'er.
I love you more than life, itself and so
I love you enough to let you go.
