"Music to inspire and nourish the soul."

I Would Give the World

Losing someone you love is very painful. Watching someone you love die little by little over months and years is torture. "I Would Give the World" expresses my deepest yearnings while watching a loved one struggle with—and finally succumb to—death.

Lyrics
I Would Give the World
I'd like to make a brand new body and put you in it.
If I could trade you places, I'd do it in a minute.
If I could have my way, you'd be like you've always been.
I would give the world to have you well again.

Life brings sorrow and heartache and pain,
But after the hard times, life gets good again.
God sends lightening and hailstorms and sleet,
For we have to know the bitter to appreciate the sweet.

I want to put my arms around you and release you never.
I'd like to send this illness away from you forever.
If God would make you well, I'd be happy as can be,
For it breaks my heart that you are leaving me.

I'm so grateful for closeness we shared.
The times when I needed you, you were always there.
I must look forward, for this thing I know:
That God opens up a window every time a door is closed.

I'd like to make a brand new body and put you in it.
If I could trade you places, I'd do it in a minute.
If I could have my way, you'd be like you've always been.
I would give the world to have you well again.
How I wish the Lord would make you whole again.
