Cry from the heart - Father Francis.

At last I have managed to obtain an old tape of the song Cry from the Heart recorded by Father Francis Maple. Here it is:

Mommy keep me safe, mommy keep me warm

Handle me with care, mommy help me to form.

I am ten weeks old, and I know the time will come
when you will give birth to me.

The gift you gave to me are a pair of bright blue eyes
So some day I will see you smile and love me.

I’ve already got my arms and a little podgy nose,
And at the end of my feet I’ve got five little toes.

I look forward to my life, ice cream and slimy snails,
teddy bears and little fairy tales.

Going for walks in the park
Running home before it’s dark.
And being tucked into bed with a kiss.

Where are we going today?
Am I in a boat or bus?

Why are we lying down?
Being drawn on four wheels?

And we go through the door
and there’s people dressed in green.
Everything seems so strange and so clean.

Mommy if they hurt you just let out a scream
and I know someone will come to help you and me.

Mommy what’s going on I am starting to cry
Come quickly they are forcing me to die.

They are killing me mommy, they are pulling me apart
My arms and my legs and now they’re at my heart.

And I won’t see the sky, or the grass or the trees.
and I won’t see the moon, or feel the breeze.

I love you mommy dear, you know I really do
But I only wish you could have loved me too!


  1. Oh Victor this song has brough tears to my eyes, if only these situations was as simple as just loving the baby......if that were the case there would never be need for abortion. I once was involved in a case where an 11 year old was forced to carry her child against the doctors view (she really had no idea what was happening to her)she was carrying her fathers child, in the end both the young girl and her baby died and the father is now out of jail and living a decent life today.....this case has haunted me for years......I am pro life Victor but I also want life for all..........:-)Hugs

  2. Hi Bernie,

    What a tragic story. And yes ... I understand what you are saying. On the one hand we have an 11 years old who would/could have survived had she aborted the baby; and on the other hand she was forced to go through with the pregnancy and both she and the baby perished.

    Dear God ... what a dilemma.

    God bless you Bernie. Thank you so much for writing in.

  3. Very, very, sad. I couldn't keep the tears back as I listened to this song, Victor.

  4. Powerful song!

    Thank you for sharing it.

  5. Og gosh this is terrible, but I am afraid it is true. How can we be so insensitive?
    As a young nurse I witnessed an aborted baby, it is sickening. What Bernie wrote about the 11year old pregnant and losing her life with her own fathers child...this is a time when I feel like beating that evil man up myself....
    We can do nothing but pray and pray...
    God is greater than all else.
    Bless you Victor-in-Christ.

  6. Hi Mary, Tracy and Crystal Mary,

    Sad song indeed. The good news is that this song has saved over 20 babies from abortion. It was written and recorded by Father Francis some years ago. He gave tapes away ... He says on the tape cover "I would like to dedicate this song to any young girl or woman who may listen to it and decide not to have an abortion. Life is God's gift."

    Years later he met a young boy who told him that his mother heard the song when pregnant and decided not to have an abortion. The boy said he owed his life to the priest. Father Francis has received over 20 other similar testaments of babies being saved.

    The tape came in my posession recently and it was in poor quality. Someone helped me to restore it and put it on You Tube. I've put other Father Francis Maple songs on You Tube - with his permission of course. Check them out.

    Father Francis has sung in public over the years (and still does) and has raised over £1m for charity. He has also written several books. He now presents several Missions in various churches throughout the UK.

    God bless.

  7. Thanks for the info on Father Francis, Victor. I can see how the song could change the mind of women considering abortion. That's awesome that you put the song on You Tube! Maybe some other babies will be saved through it. I'll check out the other songs on there.

  8. Hi Mary,

    I really wish this song saves more lives.

    God bless you Mary.

  9. This song has always brought me to tears. Praying indeed that it saves many many lives!! Cathy

  10. Hi Cathy,

    Dear God ... I hope your prayers are heard Cathy.

    God bless you.



God bless you.
