Happy Mother’s Day to all moms and female role models, mentors, and mother figures!

Each of us is someone’s baby – and we are all children of our Creator. Remember that as you enjoy this lullaby.

1. Baby so small
And new to it all,
This world is a big place to be.
Baby, you’re safe,
And softly I pray,
Let my baby sleep.
Refrain:

2. Baby of light,
I hold you at night,
For Jesus has sent you to me.
Baby, have faith,
Remember to pray,
Let my baby sleep.
Refrain:

3. Baby, through years
Of laughter and tears,
The Savior is guiding your feet.
Baby, still safe
In the Spirit that prays,
Let my baby sleep.
Refrain:

Let Him, let you,
Never forget to
Let my baby sleep.

Refrain:
OOO rest in His hands,
Trust in His plans,
Cradled and wrapped in His love.
Growing in grace,
Showing His face,
Child of the Heavens above.
Jesus who knows
The heart of your soul
Gives you His comfort and peace.
So let Him, let you,
Never forget to
Let my baby sleep.

But I did for such a long long time.
And ever since you came, you’ve been the center of my days
And kept me warm on so many nights.

But in life there are no guarantees.
Oh you have changed my heart, right from the very start,
And you’re the hope that makes me believe.
Refrain:

3. I’d like to say that I will never hurt you,
But I’m human, not angel, it’s true.
But I can promise you this, I will give you my best,
And be better than I was to you.
Refrain:

Baby, you’re the world to me. (2x)

Oh I am just a woman,
And that’s all that I might ever be.

Go the Distance

1. A little baby grows so tall,
But we can’t see it when he’s small.
Each tiny step is worth it all,
When we go the distance.
Refrain:

2. The Lord has bonded me and you
And given us a love so true.
It’s worth the trials we’ve come through,
When we go the distance.
Refrain:

3. And Jesus went to Calvary
To give His life so we might see.
It’s worth His blood to set us free,
So we can go the distance.
Refrain:

Just take His hand and understand,
He’ll help you go the distance.

Refrain:
And the journey we must make
Doesn’t seem so long.
And the many roads we take,
None of them are wrong.
‘Cause Jesus guides us every day;
He makes our crooked pathway straight.
So take His hand and understand,
You can go the distance.

Fell for You

1. I fell into this rushing world,
Too sick, too early baby girl.
But as I grew up, I got better than well.
Because I never really fell
Until the day I fell for you.
Refrain:

2. I fell and broke my wrist one day,
Spent Christmas hurt and getting X-rays.
But when I got up, it was just as well.
Because I never really fell
Until the day I fell for you.
Refrain:

3. And I fell apart so many times.
Pain broke my heart and filled my mind.
But despite it all, I turned out pretty well.
Because I never really fell
Until the day I fell for you.
Refrain:

Baby, I never really fell
Until the day I fell for you.

Refrain:
How can you fall into heaven?
How can you slide into the sky?
Only the Lord knows the answer
To this truth I can’t deny.
I am drowning in love
That I never knew.
And even as I fall,
I know I’m floating too.
Because I never really fell
Until the day I fell for you.

The Least of These

Palm Sunday Readings

1. He rode upon a donkey colt,
His purpose to fulfill.
It wasn’t trained by anyone,
But Jesus chose it still.
Refrain:

2. On hillsides where He met His flock,
The gentle shepherd spoke.
To common people Jesus brought
The Word of love and hope.
Refrain:

3. We offer Him our thanks and praise
For mercy that endures.
He walks beside us every day,
Our Savior and our Lord.
Refrain: (2x)

The precious Savior of us all
Called upon the least of these.

Refrain:
‘Cause Jesus called the least of these
When little children came.
He took them on His knees,
And Jesus blessed them in God’s name.
So when you’re feeling small,
Just think about His deeds
And how the Savior of us all
Called upon the least of these.

Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
–Hebrews 13:5 (KJV)

We love him, because he first loved us.
–1 John 4:19 (KJV)

1. We wanna be needed in this life,
Makin’ a living sacrifice.
We give in; we give up,
’cause we think that is love.
But He already paid the price.

He says you’ll never find another love like mine.
You can search the universe throughout eternal space and time.

But you’re never gonna lose it,
‘Cause I remain without forsaking you.
O I love you so that you can love me too.

Forgiveness 490

If you received this post by email, click the URL to hear this song.

I pray you end this year with forgiveness. Extend God-guided forgiveness to anyone you feel has hurt you, for your own sake, knowing that God has forgiven you. And above all, forgive yourself for all past mistakes, so you can begin the New Year, and each moment with a clean slate – spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and physically. I wish you all the best in 2018, and no matter what this year holds, may you seek and find the Presence and Power of God within you!

Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.*
–Matthew 18:21-22 (KJV)

Judge not, that ye be not judged.
For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
–Matthew 7:1-2 (KJV)

*70×7 = 490

Forgiveness 490 – Lyrics

Refrain:
[So] 490 times isn’t too tough,
Forgiving ourselves and each other for stuff.
Never forget all the sins He forgave,
To love and to keep every child that He made.
And 490 times isn’t a strain,
‘Cause we are forgiven again and again and again.

1. The number of stars in the heavens,
And each bless-ed moment we’re livin’,
The total of tears
Through laughter and fears,
That’s how many times we’re forgiven.
Refrain:

2. No human mind and emotions
Can demonstrate such a devotion.
But held in His grace
With our limits erased,
We forgive as deep as the ocean.
Refrain:

3. The tools that we’re using to measure
The worth here on earth of our treasure,
If they never budge,
That’s how we’ll be judged.
We forgive so we live in His pleasure.
Refrain:
