Here’s an amazing song.  Enjoy!

“Everything to Me”  by Mark Schultz

I must have felt your tears

When they took me from your arms

I’m sure I must have heard you say goodbye

Lonely and afraid had you made a big mistake

Could an ocean even hold the tears you cried

But you had dreams for me

You wanted the best for me

And you made the only choice you could that night


You gave life to me

A brand new world to see

Like playing baseball in the yard with dad at night

Mom reading Goodnight Moon

And praying in my room

So if you worry if your choice was right

You gave me up but you gave everything to me

And if I saw you on the street

Would you know that it was me

And would your eyes be blue or green like mine

Would we share a warm embrace

Would you know me in your heart

Or would you smile and let me walk on by

Knowing you had dreams for me

You wanted the best for me

And I hope that you’d be proud of who I am


You gave life to me

A chance to find my dreams

And a chance to fall in love

You should have seen her shining face

On our wedding day

Oh is this the dream you had in mind

When you gave me up

You gave everything to me

And when I see you there

Watching from heaven’s gates

Into your arms

I’m gonna run

And when you look in my eyes

You can see my whole life

See who I was

And who I’ve become

    Thanks a lot for getting me all teary-eyed when I’m at work! Powerful song.


    • I thought of you when I posted it and cried through the end of the song — I knew you’d watch it at work and have to fight tears. It is an amazing song, I think. Of course, it uses the phrase “gave me up” which isn’t what we call it anymore; now we say, “placed me for adoption.” I hope the “gave me up” part isn’t offensive to anyone. But the song is awesome! I love the double meaning of “You gave me life” — you did not choose to abort me, and you gave me my life that I lived. It’s great! And, yes, it’s a tear-jerker! I am SO GLAD we understand that song deeply and personally!! Actually, it’s more than a double meaning when you think of singing that chorus to Christ who gave us life. . . .


  2. It’s my first time to hear this song. Very nice song and video. I’m starting to cry now 😦
