A Mother's Prayer

As a new year approaches, I can think of nothing more than to pray for my child(ren).
I got a gift card to itunes for Christmas and was looking through songs and just so happened to come across this one.
Now, it could be a bit of the pregnancy hormones but I was bawling at the end of this song.
Close your eyes when you listen to this and say the prayer as Rachel sings the beautiful words.
It is so true.
Here's the link for those viewing from mobile devices....

Lyrics:
A Mother’s Prayer (HANNAH'S SONG) Words by Rachel Aldous
Music by John Mandeville


Verse:
My sweet baby on loan from above
no better treasure could I more love
I stand here beside your bed as I pray
I lay my hand on your head and I say:

Chorus:
May you grow up to serve Him
all of your days
May He lead you and guide you
in all of your ways
May He bless your future with
friendships that last
May you cherish your youth
and not grow up too fast

Verse:
I stare in wonder at your tiny frame
Just to think God knows you by name
He knows every hair on your head
He knows your thoughts before they are said

Chorus:
May you grow up to serve Him
all of your days
May He lead you and guide you
in all of your ways
May He bless your future with
friendships that last
May you cherish your youth
and not grow up too fast

Prayer:
May God grant you peace
in the midst of a storm
May God give you strength even
when you’re forlorn
May you answer the door when
Jesus comes knocking
May wisdom guide when
your mouth is talkin’
May discretion protect you
and keep you pure
May you never stumble
or fall for a lure
May your heart remain humble
to the very end
May uprightness and truth
be what you defend
May the world not ensnare
or change who you are
May the light that's within you
shine like the stars
May angels surround you
body, spirit, mind
May favor and peace be yours to find
May rejection and pain
never reach you
May your spirit grow bold
for what you’re called to

Chorus:
May you grow up to serve Him
all of your days
May He lead you and guide you
in all of your ways
May He bless your future with
friendships that last
May you cherish your youth
and not grow up too fast

Singing:
As you rest in God’s care I will rest too
Knowing that Jesus is watching over you
Amen

Hannah speaks: I love you, Mommy…


I hope everyone has a wonderful 2010! Stay Safe!
