Oldie but Goodie

Back in the day (about 1990) I was a Sandi Patti fan. I know, I know! Well, she had this song that I always loved, but it wasn't personal to me until I became a mom. It just popped into my head today and I started singing it to Josie . . . do you think she notices when my voice cracks because I'm crying?!

Cradle Song
I watch beside your cradle
Your face touched by the moon
My heart just aches and trembles
With all my love for you
Your eyes shine like your Father's
That nose looks just like me
I stare in awe and wonder
At such a mystery
How God can touch the love of a man and wife
And blossom it into the breath of life

Just look at this life
We want you to understand
You rest in His loving hands
For you are Jesus' little lamb

Our eyes are filled with dreaming
We want so much for you
But we might fail you often
Before your life is through
Only your Heav'nly Father
Can hear you ev'ry prayer
When we are just a mem'ry
Your Lord will still be there
So on our knees we pray this cradle song
That you'll always know the Lord will keep you strong
