This song was written after Angie Smith, the wife of Selah's main singer, was given an "incompatible with life" diagnosis during her fourth pregnancy. Angie and Todd chose to continue the pregnancy, and this song is about how little Audrey was carried by Angie for her whole life. Beautiful words.
*Glory Baby - Watermark
You have no idea how much I listened to this particular song in the first few months. I think it's such a beautiful song. The link I have for this song (click on the song's title) is a memorial video for my friend Sarah's little Evie Caris. It's a beautiful song for a beautiful little girl.
*Still - Gerrit Hofsink
Written about his grandson, who was stillborn late in pregnancy. I adore this song, because it talks about the love for a child someone can have, even before the child is born.
Any song from the album Beauty Will Rise by Steven Curtis Chapman. My two favourites are:
*Heaven is the Face
*Beauty Will Rise
All the songs on this album were written after Steven's five year old daughter, Maria, died in a tragic accident. I bought the album a few weeks after Ariella's birth, and had it on repeat in my car for months! The video links are for clips of Steven actually singing the songs live, and I found them quite touching; you can see his emotions so clearly, especially in the clip for Heaven is the Face. I've written about the song Beauty Will Rise here.
*With Hope - Steven Curtis Chapman
This song was written before his daughter's death, but talks about how as Christians, people can say good-bye "with hope" because of the assurance of Heaven. I like it because it acknowledges that this hope does not discount or remove the pain of losing someone.
*Small Bump - Ed Sheeran
One of the few mainstream songs that I've heard of to actually address the issue of baby loss.
*My Name - George Canyon
This song is written from a stillborn baby's perspective, about how all they ever knew was love and how the parents loved them without ever knowing their name. Very touching and worth a listen.
*The Hurt and the Healer - MercyMe
