Encouraging saints around the world since 1991 !!

 

Verse one was written as an exercise for a college composition class (1978).
Verse two was written at Jellystone Campground (8/91, Sturbridge MA)
late at night while trying to calm my crying infant. 
 I sang this lullaby to my kids for many years !

 

[MP3]
 

HUSH MY LITTLE LOVED ONE

Hush my little loved one
It's time now to rest
Throughout the day you have given
Each task your best
You'll need strength to face tomorrow
Hush child, time now to rest
You'll need strength to face tomorrow
Hush child, time now to rest

While you are asleep God will watch over you
His guardian angels protecting
His Spirit will soothe
In the morning, when you awaken
We'll be close by your side
In the morning when you awaken
We'll be close by your side

(repeat first verse)

 

Substitute "loved one" with your child's name


Recorded on:      
"Before The Coming Lord" (1992)
