MY LULLABIES

Love your little ones, hug them, sing to them, let them know they are precious, wanted, safe.

YOU ARE SO LOVED
Little child, it’s time for sleep
Let your heart beat rest in mine
Let me sing a lullaby
Know, my child, you are so loved
O child of mine
O child of mine

baby under the towel

WE THANK YOU LORD
O sweet one, do not weep
Let me dry your tears
Rest in my loving arms
Let’s count our many blessings
We thank You Lord for this day
That is about to close
We thank You Lord for each smile
For each wiggle of tiny nose
For every breath You’ve given us
For every beat of Your love
We thank You that we’re in Your hands
And that we’re safe in Your arms tonight

when it rains

PITTER PATTER, PITTER PATTER
Listen to the rain outside
Pitter patter, pitter patter
It sounds like the beat of my heart
So in love with you
Listen to the rain outside
Pitter patter, pitter patter
It sounds like the beat of your heart
So in love with me
Listen to the rain outside
Pitter patter, pitter patter
It sounds like the beat of our hearts
So in love, I with you, you with me
So in love, I with you, you with me
Pitter patter, pitter patter
Pitter patter, pitter patter

mother and baby

I WILL COMFORT YOU
Take my hand, and snuggle in
I will comfort you
Look into my eyes of love
I will comfort you
Do not fear, my little one
I will comfort you
And when your eyes are heavy
And it’s time to go to sleep
Know that I’m still with you
I will stay
I will never leave
I will comfort you

baby against blue sky

LET’S COUNT HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU
Let’s count how much I love you
One little toe
Two
Three little toe
Four
Five little toe

O look
I found some more
Six
Seven little toe
Eight
Nine little toe
Ten

But wait
I know there’s more

Because one day
These cute little toes
Will be wiggling all over the world
(give their little tummy a tickle!)
And I want you to remember, my child
That with each footprint that you make
No matter where you are
My heart will be there with you
Forever, my child, remember
With each footprint that you make
My heart will be there with you
And that’s how much I love you

MUMMA BAKED AN APPLE PIE
Mumma baked an apple pie
Can you smell the sweetness
Mumma baked an apple pie
Could never match your sweetness
Mumma baked a chocolate cake
Can you smell the richness
Mumma baked a chocolate cake
Could never match your richness
Mumma, well she just loves to bake
And soon, I’ll bake for you
And one day you can help me bake
And then we’ll bake for two

first christmas

IT’S HUG TIME
Let’s take your teddy bear
And wrap him up so warm
It’s cold outside
And the snow is falling
Come snuggle cuddle snuggle together
And we’ll all have a big bear hug

I’ll hug you
And you’ll hug me
And we’ll hug teddy
That’s one, two, three

One hug
Two hugs
Three hugs

I’ll hug you
And you’ll hug me
And we’ll hug teddy
Yes, one, two, three

sleeping baby

SWEET NIGHT’S SLEEP
When the sun is setting low
And the flowers, heads do bow
May the softness of the night air
Wrap around you, and your teddy bear
Lull you into a sweet night’s sleep
May my love for you, in your heart keep
O my darling little child
I’ll dream a dream for you awhile
And as I lay you down safe and sound
May God’s love, in you, forever abound
