Song background:

Though I can't claim the beautiful inspiration behind the lyrics of this amazing children's song, I can claim the person who did write them as my sister (whom I love and admire very much).  I'm so grateful she allowed me to have a part in the creation of this song. 

My own personal testimony of the doctrine expressed in this sweet song has grown as I ponder the simple words of eternal truths that all of God's children should feel in their hearts as they feel after Him.  We DID live before this life, and I'm confident that He DID know us.  Our faith and strength, our abilities and talents were all very apparent to Him, and he placed us here on earth in a most opportune way for us to search after and use those abilities and gifts. After fitting the music to these words, they have taken a place in my heart and mind and I know that all of us are on this earth, "for such a time as this".

Lyrics: God knew Esther, <br/>He planned her time of birth, <br/>He knew her faith and strength <br/>and sent her to the earth. <br/>Esther had a mission, <br/>to fulfill God's plan, <br/>She risked her life <br/>to save her people <br/>from the king's command. <br/>She felt afraid, but she chose faith and said: <br/> <br/>Chorus: <br/>"For such a time as this, <br/>for such a time as now, <br/>my Father gave me gifts <br/>and He will whisper how <br/>to be faithful and brave. <br/>My precious spirit he saved <br/>For such a time as this." <br/> <br/>2nd verse: <br/>God knows me, <br/>He planned my time of birth, <br/>He blessed me with good gifts <br/>and sent me to the earth. <br/>I have a mission, <br/>God trusts me to fulfill, <br/>I'll learn and use the gifts I have <br/>He'll help me know His will! <br/>I might feel afraid, <br/>but I'll choose faith and say: <br/> <br/>Chorus: <br/>""For such a time as this, <br/>for such a time as now, <br/>my Father gave me gifts <br/>and He will whisper how <br/>to be faithful and brave. <br/>My precious spirit he saved <br/>For such a time as this." <br/>
