Glad You Were Born


I attended Seven Brides for Seven Brothers this weekend. I enjoy musicals. In the show there's this lovely song. I must have heard the song before, as I am familiar with the show, although I don't remember thinking too much about it. Call me cheesy but I think it's a beautiful little song. I felt a warmth in my heart during a high school musical. I appreciate the fact that back in the 50s they weren't afraid to include God in their writings, songs, and t.v. shows. This song pretty well sums up the way I feel about my baby E.


Through your eyes skies look brighter
Grass more green clouds are whiter.
When you're close cares grow lighter,

I'm glad that you were born.

Through your eyes hills stretch higher.
When you smile you inspire hearts to sing in a choir.

I'm glad that you were born.

Born to laugh, born to dream
Born to spread your light.
Through your eyes I see clearer
You bring God so much nearer.

Life has grown so much dearer,
I'm glad that you were...

Born to laugh, born to dream
Born to spread your light

Through your eyes I see clearer
You bring God so much nearer.
Life has grown so much dearer


I'm glad that you were born.


Song written by: (Johnny Mercer/Gene De Paul)

I've seen that movie about a hundred times and I don't remember that song. Too bad because it's so cute! I'll have to go watch it again and see if I can find it.

Is that just in the live version? I also grew up on that movie and I don't remember it but I do love it! What a cute song and it totally reminds me of my little man too.

I've never seen the movie, it may just be part of the stage version.
