DULUTH, GA, September 12, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Cathy Weaver (left) and some children record a new song that they believe could possibly change the minds of expectant parents contemplating an abortion.
Written by David Burke (right), "We Want to See the World" is an emotional call-and-response ballad between an angel and children who are still in their mothers' wombs. The lyrics portray beautiful images of earth, convey messages about reaching heaven, and assure parents of God's grace for their children.
Burke sent the song to more than 15,000 Catholic churches nationwide to encourage their music ministers and Respect Life directors to use the song, particularly during October, which Catholics recognize as Respect Life Month. He also sent the song throughout the country to various Catholic/Christian media (radio/print), Christian churches of other denominations, and pro-life organizations. Burke says the response has been positively overwhelming, and the aim of the group is to reach as many people as possible.
The song can be heard, downloaded, and its sheet music printed (all free) from the following website:
