"I Give You To His Heart" as written by and Ron Block....
The wind is blowing down the quiet river
A shining road that carries you alone
Baby boy, my love will last forever
If you're to live, I must give you up to God

I know our God will guide, protect and keep you
Teach you faith and hold you by the heart
Though your mother's heart is broken by your leaving
Her father knows just who he is and who you are

[Chorus]
I wish that life wasn't always ending up this way
With Heaven's love at stake and hell to pay
But you in God's loving plan might be the missing part
You must live
So I give you to His heart

The wind is blowing down the silent river
A shining road that leaves me all alone
A life for you's worth losing you forever
Some day we'll stand in God's fair land, forever home

[Chorus x 2]

    General CommentIt seems obvious to me that this is from the perspective of Moses' mother.

    General CommentNot sure if its obvious, as will all lyrics a lot can be left up to interpretation.

    This could be from the perspective of any woman who has had to give up her child for its betterment. A person of faith in a position to where they were unable to give the child everything they need, might realize they were cutting short the child's chances, possibly even to the point of being a detriment to its life. As hard as it might sound, God's call might be for that person to give the baby up, turning their life into his capable hands. This of course could and would be very hard to do, "hell to pay". The river is a metaphor for sending them off, without any expectation of every knowing what became of them.
