A Momma's Lullaby

There are times when I feel like my heart could burst with the love I have for my babies. I am always so humbled when I am reminded that as much as I love my children, Jesus loves them even more! I know as a Momma there will be times when I can hold them tight and protect them from the hurt of this world, but I also know there will be times when things are out of my control and I will feel like I can't protect their little hearts and minds. Whenever I start to worry and become overwhelmed, I know that I can rest in the Lord and know that ultimately my children belong to Him and that He loves them even more than I do!   

Good night
Looks like we made it through the day
The moon sighs
And I know that we're okay

Sleep tight
I love to watch you drift away
I would come with you but on my knees I'll stay

Good night
Five little fingers holding mine
Take flight
Into your dreams and lullabies

There's nothing more that I can do
But just fall more in love with you
And ask the angel armies to stand by
When I leave the room

I'm gonna fail you
I already have
Ten thousand times
I will fall down flat

You'll have a seat in the front row
Of everything I don't know
And all I'm trying to be
You'll see

Good night
There will be storms that we come through
In time
We will slay dragons me and you

I'll always wanna hold you tight
Keep you safe with all my might
So I will leave Jesus next to you
When I leave the room

And you will run ahead
As if you know the way
And I will pray more
Then one should have to pray

There will be words we can't take back
Silences too
And I'll be on my knees
You'll see

One night
When I am old and unsteady
You'll want me to fight
But I'll tell you that I'm ready

When there's nothing left to do
I will still be loving you
Then you'll fold your fingers into mine
And I will let Jesus hold you tight
When I leave the room

  1. I haven't heard this one. Thanks for sharing. My youngest, he's 5, still loves to snuggle up in my arms and have me sing to him.
