I know that he is too young right now to understand the words of whatever lullaby I choose to sing, but that won't always be the case. Before I know it, he will be old enough to really listen and start understanding the words & maybe even ask questions. In the meantime, the songs minister to me and serve as a special time of private praise, a bonding and rededicating of my life & my son to my God.
Here are some hymns or devotional songs that I've found work particularly well as lullabies:
- Trust and Obey
- Seek Ye First
- Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus
- Jesus Loves Me (of course)
- What a Friend We Have in Jesus
- Here We Are But Straying Pilgrims
- Jesus, Keep Me Near the Cross
- Day By Day
- Peace, Perfect Peace
- Holy, Holy, Holy
