song: Jenny and Tyler: In Everything You Do

Singers and songwriters, Jenny and Tyler, wrote this song, In Everything You Do, for their daughter. I posted the lyrics below, and here is a lyric video if you wish to hear the song. It's a beautiful song. I think it's quite difficult to capture the joys and aches of parenting in so many words, but I think this song somehow does just that.


I wish that I could keep you from pain
But like a storm, pain will form
But I’ll teach you how to face it
To be weak, yet strong in grace

I wish that I could keep you from fear
But like the night, fear will rise
So I’ll hold till love suffices
To drive far the dark devices and behold

A world that’s full of wonder
Full of laughter, full of life
A world that pulls you under
With the turning of the tide
In everything you do a choice of life or death to choose
And we will try to show you love

I wish that I could keep you from doubt
But like the waves, doubt will rage
So I’ll sail with you through troubled seas
Until we find a gentler breeze and behold

A world so full of wonder
Full of laughter, full of life
A world that pulls you under
With the turning of the tide
In everything you do a choice of life or death to choose
And we will try to show you love

And behold

A world so full of wonder


Full of laughter, full of life
A world torn asunder
Aching for new light
In everything you do a choice of life or death to choose
And we will try to show you love
We will try to show you love
