11. Meant To Be

re:creation
by Steven Curtis Chapman



 

Long before you drew your first breath
A dream was coming true
God wanted to give a gift to the world
So He wrapped it up in you
Every step that youíve taken
Every move that you make
Is part of His plan

CHORUS
You were meant to be touching the lives that you touch
And meant to be here making this world so much more
Than it would be without you in it
You were meant to be bringing the gifts that you bring
And singing the songs youíve been given to sing
You are perfectly, wonderfully
Beautifully meant to be
You were meant to be

Long before you took your first fall
And stumbled to the ground
God started telling the story of you
To the angels gathered around
Every failure and victory
And everything in between
Itís all in His hands

REPEAT CHORUS

You are, you are, you are meant to be
You are, you are, you are meant to be

For every breath that youíre taking
And every move that you make
Itís a meaningful life youíve been given
So live it well

REPEAT CHORUS
