Sing Over Me

The past few nights when Little Bear starts to cry in the night and I pick him up out of his crib and carry him to our bed, I have been holding him close. Even though I am practically sleepwalking, there has been something sweet about this moment in the night. I am acutely aware of my love for him. I breath him in and say to him in a whisper, "I just want to sing over you." To be honest,I am not a great singer. In fact, I am quite horrible. But, I have this urge to sing of my love over him so he knows how deeply he is loved and cherished.



I remembered the song "Singing Over Me" by Building 429 this morning. 

Here are the lyrics.

It amazes me that our God sings over us too!

In the middle of the night


When I finally close my eyes


With the memory of the day


Running circles in my mind


The voice that calms the seas


Is whispering to me


Putting all my fears to rest


Yeah You put them all to rest



Then I realize that 

You’re always by my side


When I stand, when I fall, when the lights go off



You You’re singing over me


You’re singing over me tonight


With every star that’s in this midnight sky


You, You’re singing over me


You’re singing over me tonight


And my heart is overcome with Your song
with Your song



From the depths of my soul


You are calling me


To the evidence of You
In all Your Glory


From the iris of an eye


To the mountains majesty


Putting all my doubts to rest



Yeah then I realize that you are always by my side


In my worst and best, in this beating chest,


When I’m living dying always finding



You You’re singing over me


You’re singing over me tonight


With every star that’s in this midnight sky


You, You’re singing over me


You’re singing over me tonight


And my heart is overcome with 

Your song
with Your song



I’m singing along
Yeah, I can hear it


And I’m singing along
