On Bended Knee

Like I did with Hannah, when Justus is eating or if I am just trying to console him when he is crying I sing to him.

(I love to sing and I am really really not good at it so this is great for me, Justus can't say anything and he really doesn't know how the song is suppose to go so I always sound right on, to him!! It is great!)

What I did with Hannah and what I am doing with Justus is I just sit and go thru the Songs of Faith and Praise song book I have here at the house and sing every one that I know as I come to it. When I am finished for the moment I put the marker in and I start there and keep going thru the book the next time. It is a nice time that I have had with my children doing this.

Today I sang one that I had not sung in a while. The words especially touched me today. It is in the "Prayer" section of the book. I don't pray this way enough. Below the title is this verse: Ephesians 3:14 For this reason I kneel before the Father.

On Bended Knee
Words and Music by Robert Gay

On bended knee I come,
With a humble heart I come;
Bowing down before Your holy throne.
Lifting holy hands to You,
As I pledge my love anew.
I worship You in spirit,
I worship You in truth;
Make my life a holy praise unto You.

On bended knee I come,
With a broken heart I come;
Bowing down before Your holy throne.
As I look upon Your face,
Show Your mercy and Your grace.
Change my life, O Holy Spirit,
Make me fresh and ever new;
Make my life a holy sacrifice to You.

Great hymn! Please, don't EVER stop singing to your children. I hope you always remember me as one who loves to sing hymns, psalms, and spiritual songs! (And,yes,I know it doesn't stop there). I just love to sing. How blessed Hannah and Justus are to have a singing Mom! I Love You!
