HELD TOGETHER WITH LOVE (A Song of Creation)

mother and baby

Chorus
Well He knitted me together with love
And not one stitch did He miss
Without sweet compassion
Every part of me is where He first placed it
Who am I to question His final design or wisdom?

And so I’m held together with love
His love, so tender sent from above
Throughout all eternity, He gave
Life and for my feet a path did pave

He’d already chosen the colour
Of my skin, my eyes, bright not duller
My hair, to be curly or so straight
A full head of hair, then or to wait

Chorus
Well He knitted me together with love
And not one stitch did He miss
Without sweet compassion
Every part of me is where He first placed it
Who am I to question His final design or wisdom?

And deep within my heart He had placed
An answer for each trial I faced
For every day when skies would be dark
Enough light to ignite hope’s bright spark

So knowing this I cannot worry
I may struggle, my steps be blurry
But because my Creator knows me
That He sees, well ’tis enough for me

Bridge
He saw me
He saw me
Even before one breath I took
He saw me
And loved me
But then I took a breath and forsook
Forgive me Lord
For all the years
I looked the other way
For all the years
I did not see
The love you’d sewn in me

Chorus
Well He knitted me together with love
And not one stitch did He miss
Without sweet compassion
Every part of me is where He first placed it
Who am I to question His final design or wisdom?

Psalm 139 King James Version (KJV)

139 O Lord, Thou hast searched me, and known me.

2 Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, Thou understandest my thought afar off.

3 Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways.

4 For there is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O Lord, Thou knowest it altogether.

5 Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid Thine hand upon me.

6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it.

7 Whither shall I go from Thy Spirit? or whither shall I flee from Thy presence?

8 If I ascend up into heaven, Thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, Thou art there.

9 If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea;

10 Even there shall Thy hand lead me, and Thy right hand shall hold me.

11 If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me.

12 Yea, the darkness hideth not from Thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to Thee.

13 For Thou hast possessed my reins: Thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb.

14 I will praise Thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are Thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.

15 My substance was not hid from Thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.

16 Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in Thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.

17 How precious also are Thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them!

18 If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with Thee.

19 Surely Thou wilt slay the wicked, O God: depart from me therefore, ye bloody men.

20 For they speak against Thee wickedly, and Thine enemies take Thy name in vain.

21 Do not I hate them, O Lord, that hate Thee? and am not I grieved with those that rise up against Thee?

22 I hate them with perfect hatred: I count them mine enemies.

23 Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts:

24 And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
