A bedtime song

March 16, 2008

Bright stars are watching the world as it sleeps
Shepherds watch over the little white sheep
The lighthouse is shining for ships far at sea
As God keeps the night watch for you and for me
So sleep *insert childs name*

Sleep in peace and rest don’t be afraid of the darkness
All’s well far over the land and the sea
God’s keeping the night watch for you and for me

This is the song my dad used to sing over me, the song my sisters and brothers sing to their children and the song I sing to mine.

I’m taking a brief respite from blogging. Becoming a Bloggie Van Winkle.

Blessings to you all.

  • I used to sing Larry Norman’s “Forget Your Hexagram” and Daniel Amos’ “Man in the Moon” to my son when he was a baby. Not exactly your typical lullaby material, but he loved it. Calmed him almost every time.
