God Knew Your Name
Words and music by James Likens. Every once in a while a song comes along that not only speaks to the heart, it changes the heart. This is one of them. Originally written for the dramatic film Life: It’s a "Class" Project, God Knew Your Name has been used at baptisms, weddings, funerals, and in the classroom to teach that God is the Creator and Author of LIFE. God Knew Your Name has touched the lives and hearts of thousands of people.
“Before the light of day shined on your little face, God knew your name. When no one else could see how precious you would be, God knew your name.”
Included on the DVD: sheet music in PDF format; lyrics for female singer; accompaniment track, key of D, MP3 format
God Loves Life
God Loves Life is the theme song for our For Life video available through Concordia Publishing House.
God Loves Life lyrics
From the moment of first conception
And His love is without exception
Rich or poor Big or small
In love, His Son He gave us
Through Christ, our God has saved us
Short or tallYoung or old
In Water and Word He claims us
By the Spirit’s power, He names us
Shy or bold
Girl or boy
Now my heart in faith confesses
And each day my life He blesses
Yellow or red
Black or white
And when life on earth is ended
And in heaven our life’s extended
Rich or poorBig or small
God Loves Life
God Loves Life.

Here is a wonderful life-affirming hymn written and sent to us by Rev. Alan Kornacki, Jr., pastor at St. Peter Lutheran Church, Campbell Hill, Illinois. This hymn would a wonderful addition on Life Sunday—or anytime.
Before I Formed You in the Womb I Knew You
Before I formed you in the Womb I knew you.
Conceived in sin, My Word of life still drew you.
Bought with a price, you are My holy treasure,
Loved beyond measure.
Lo, your first parents I made in My image,
But through their fall that kinship they did damage.
I made a promise: My Son would redeem them.
Thus I esteem them.
You are a temple of the Holy Spirit.
You are My own; the Kingdom you inherit.
You are My child and I your holy Father—
I and no other.
All life is Mine; I jealously possess it.
I gave you life, and with My Word I bless it.
My Word shall speak to unborn generations
Of their salvation.
