The wind is blowing down the quiet river,
A shining road that carries you alone.
Baby boy my love will last forever.
If you're to live, I must give you up to God.

I know our God will guide, protect and keep you.
Teach you faith and hold you by the heart.
Though your mother's heart is broken by your leaving,
Her Father knows just who he is and who you are.

I wish that life wasn't always ending up this way,
With Heaven's love at stake and hell to pay.
But you in God's loving plan might be the missing part.
You must live.
So I give you to his heart.

The wind is blowing down the silent river,
A shining road that leaves me all alone.
A life for you's worth losing you forever.
Some day we'll stand in God's fair land, forever home.

I wish that life wasn't always ending up this way,
With Heaven's love at stake and hell to pay.
But you in God's loving plan might be the missing part.
You must live.
So I give you to his heart.

I wish that life wasn't always ending up this way,
With Heaven's love at stake and hell to pay.
But you in God's loving plan might be the missing part.
You must live.
So I give you to his heart.

    Moses surrendered into the nile in a basket boat by his mother, to save him from the pharoah's edict to kill all baby boys. The irony is that moses was pulled out of the nile by pharoah's daughter, raised as her son and became second to the pharoah over all egypt. This put him in the place to go on from there and ultimately deliver all of israel from bondage

    A man chooses to leave family and country to go to distant and dangerous mission fields to spread his faith. His mother believes in his calling but wants him to stay home near family. Although they pray for their children to be truly committed to the Lord it is still a great sacrifice for mothers to let their children leave, forsaking all.
