Long before anyone knew you would be,
Our loving God had an idea:
He put just the right features together, and then,
He created the one known as you.
There is nobody else in all the world,
In history or in years to come,
Who has been created with that specific idea
Of the person we know as you.
Uniquely made to reflect the glory
Of the Lover of each one’s soul;
He made your being and prepared all the good works;
Then gave a name to that one you.
Dearly loved, you are precious in his sight;
More treasured than any riches.
He pours out all that he is to respond to the
One he created to be you.
