We are unsure of what the future holds and what life will be like in the next minute. But we know the One who holds the future and in Him, we find our rest. This prayer song talks about just that. Requesting God for guidance and protection in this unpredictable journey of life.
This lovely video shows the singer cradling her baby as she sits on a rocking chair, sweetly singing the classic Christian lullaby ‘Tallis Canon’. Furthermore, the mother is seen helping her kids get to bed and praying over them, and kissing them goodnight.
The song begins by praising God for who He is and for all His blessings and the author implores God to keep them under His protection from the unforeseen future and things that may come along life’s way.
Glory to thee, my God, this night,
For all the blessings of the light:
Keep me, O keep me, King of kings,
Beneath thine own almighty wing.
The author goes on to request God to help them live life fearlessly from all the pain and suffering that death can bring to them. So that they can pass on peacefully and rise on the judgment day to behold Him in Glory.
Teach me to live, that I may dread
The grave as little as my bed;
Teach me to die, that so I may
Rise glorious at the judgement day
The prayer song concluded by praising God and inviting all creatures and heavenly hosts to give God the praise, He utmostly deserves.
Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;
Praise him, all creatures here below;
Praise him above, ye heavenly host:
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
One of the viewers perhaps puts it best when they commented, “I wish I could articulate my thoughts on this video, but all I can say is … not only just a beautiful song that is beautifully sung … but oh the wonderful peacefulness, the looks of love and tenderness … just the way our Savior would be with us!! I wish that every child could have a Mother like you, Lindsey!! I know each of your children must feel so loved and cherished! May God help each of us to show this kind of love to our children and grandchildren and others in our lives. Thank you for this truly wonderful video!! God bless you, dear sister!!!”
