At the Scratch of a Pen, by DianaDee Osborne

ALBUM:      Amazing LORD 'n' LIFE
Song location  http://DianaDeeosborneSongs.com/NEW-Songs.php
Song Story: 
        I had to look through ten pages of my journal that day to try to find what inspired this song.  Entire song lyrics were written in minutes in a  store parking lot.  
(1) In a radio sermon on an entirely different topic, Alistair Begg used the title phrase.  
(2) I had just completed  a typing transcription job for Pastor Kibby's sermon about handwriting.   
(3) Somehow -- another “God How” -- the two ideas merged.....
        and I  “Just sat”  at the keyboard and once again God's Holy Spirit inspired this music.  But it was a struggle to even practice the lyrics before going to the recording studio -- I kept breaking into weeping.  The first time I sang the song all the way through without my voice choking up was The ONLY times the song's vocal track was recorded in either of my two professional studios.
  The words are SO sad -- not only for children who will never be born,  but for their  MOTHERS   who will never forget them.... 

Notice that the song is written ALSO for THE  CHURCH.... 
...... may we reflect Christ..... may we  not be Pharisaical.....

Dedicated to THE Creator of All Life, 10 July 2012,   with thoughts of Paul Joseph Osborne

    AT   THE  SCRATCH  OF  A  PEN   one  life  is  changed.
    AT   THE  SCRATCH  OF  A  PEN   another  ends.           
    AT THE SCRATCH OF A PEN  should compassion come
    for a heart that's confused,  fearful .......BROKEN ?
    After scratches of pens come years of questioning
    Was there really a life ended by abortion?

Psalm 139, verses 13 to 16.  “For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother's womb... Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, The days fashioned for me, When as yet there were none of them.”

Exodus 21: 22-23, a pattern:   "If men fight, and hurt a woman with child, so that she gives birth prematurely [and the baby dies], ....then you shall give life for life....”   
God's word CLEARLY says:  An unborn child IS  A  LIFE .

 Written in an age when humans did NOT value even women very highly, much less babies.  So this is   EVIDENCE  that these words ARE FROM GOD.   Because  PEOPLE would not have wanted
to  keep this law  in the Bible.     Just like our modern societies...

PART  2 - Part 1 with scriptures during the interludes  (NKJV)
AT   THE  SCRATCH  OF  A  PEN   one  life  is  changed.
AT   THE  SCRATCH  OF  A  PEN   another  ends.           

From the Gospel of John, Chapter 8, New Living Translation: 
As Jesus was speaking, the teachers of religious law and the Pharisees brought a woman... in front of the crowd.  "Teacher," they said to Jesus, "this woman was caught in the act of adultery.  The law of Moses says to stone her. What do you   say?"

AT THE SCRATCH OF A PEN  should compassion come
for a heart that's confused,  fearful .......BROKEN ?          

They were trying to trap him... but Jesus stooped down and wrote in the dust with his finger.  They kept demanding an answer, so he.... said, "All right... let the one who has never sinned throw the first stone!"  ... The accusers .... slipped away.... until only Jesus was left in the middle of the crowd with the woman.
After scratches of pens come years of questioning:                         
Was there really a life  ended by abortion?  

Jesus said to the woman, "Where are your accusers? Didn't even one of them condemn you?"   "No, Lord," she said. And Jesus said, "Neither do I.  Go and sin no more."  
Mark 11:26 ---  "... if YOU do not forgive,
neither will your Father in heaven forgive YOUR trespasses."
PART  3   -  “Amazing Grace”  minor melody (Public Domain)
Amazing Grace,  how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me -- EVEN ME!
    I once was.... lost,   but now,  am found.  Was blind,  but now I see -----
        I sinned but Jesus forgave me.

God never will scratch off me --------
       or OTHERS  who chose wrongly.  AND SO:PART  4  “Nothing But the Blood of Jesus”  minor, clashing melody  (Public Domain)

How can I  NOT forgive someone  tricked to scratch  a Pen of DEATH?
How can CHURCH  not COMFORT someone 
                      tricked  into scratching  a pen....  pen.....  pen....
