Anna’s Song

I’ll admit that bedtime is not one of my favorite times. I rush through it, just pushing towards the finish line of my day as mommy.

Often I regret speeding through it all, instead of stopping and savoring the moments I have with them. They want to be rocked, loved, sung to. I know that this will not always be the case, and I will wish that I had more often taken the five minutes to sing instead of rushing off to write a post or check my email.

Since she was a baby, I have sung Amazing Grace to my sweet Anna. Lately her usual request is “God is Bigger than the Boogie-man”, yet I still try to sneak in “her song” when I can.

I long for her to know and understand the truths of God’s great and glorious grace!

{Gracious Lord, reveal your grace to her heart}

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.

{Grace that is irresistible to her soul}

T’was Grace that taught my heart to fear.
And Grace, my fears relieved.
How precious did that Grace appear
The hour I first believed.

{Grace that she cannot escape from, no matter what comes her way}

Through many dangers, toils and snares
I have already come;
‘Tis Grace that brought me safe thus far
and Grace will lead me home.

{Grace that will never let her go}

When we’ve been here ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun.
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
Than when we’ve first begun.

The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit.

Philippians 4:23
