Matthew West’s pro-life ‘Unplanned’ song beautifully describes preborn baby

Unplanned, pro-life

Christian singer-songwriter Matthew West has penned many beloved songs, such as “Grace Wins,” “Forgiveness,” “Do Something,” and “You are Everything.” And now, West has put his talent behind the new pro-life movie, “Unplanned,” with a title track of the same name.

The song, says West, was written “from the perspective of someone seeing their baby for the first time. Tried to capture the feelings I had when I first heard my daughter’s heartbeat; the overwhelming sense of a life that is precious, a miracle & a gift.”

The lyrics of the song speak powerfully of the humanity of the child in the womb. In part, they read:

I’m looking at a masterpiece
I’m staring at a work of art
I’m listening to a symphony
In every beat of your tiny heart
You used to be a choice to make
But now I think you’ve chosen me
‘Cause I see ten fingers, ten toes
Two eyes and I know this is meant to be

Oh I don’t believe in accidents
Miracles, they don’t just happen by chance
As long as my God holds the world in his hands
I know that there’s no such thing as unplanned

Broken turns to beautiful
I see you right before my eyes
And every single breath you breathe
Is destiny love has brought to love
I thought it was my story’s end
But now the future’s all I see
Instead of asking who you might’ve been
I’m wondering who you’re gonna be….

Every life deserves a voice
Every child deserves a chance
You are more than just a choice
There’s no such thing as unplanned
Every life deserves a voice
Every child deserves a chance
You are more than just a choice
There’s no such thing as unplanned….

 

“Unplanned,” the movie, releases next week on March 29th. See the trailer below.
