Hymn Of The Day: Come, Christians, Join To Sing

 

Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee.O let the nations be glad and sing for joy: for thou shalt judge the people righteously, and govern the nations upon earth. Selah.

Psalms 67:3-4





BMW, (Boy in the Mid-west), usually does not like to sit in his bouncy seat while I work at the kitchen counter. I mean, he REALLY does not like to watch me do anything in the kitchen. He just cries and cries until I pick him up. 

I am not sure why it upsets him so much. I suspect that it has something to do with him not being able to see anything because the cabinets are like walls on both sides. (He likes to sit in the bouncy seat when I am doing laundry in the basement, so, I am sure the problem is not the seat.)

Anyway,  yesterday afternoon while I was washing some dishes I started to sing the hymn, Come Christians, Join To Sing, and he really liked it. I usual try singing to him to no avail, but for some reason he really liked that song. He actually was smiling and, "singing along".

Eventually he grew tied of it, but I was able to get most of the dishes done without him wailing, which never happens, unless he is sleeping. :)

Without farther ado, today's song of the day is:


Here is nice recording of the song that I found on You Tube:


I hope you find yourself singing along!

Have a nice day!

I know how hard it can be working in the kitchen when you have a sweet baby who needs attention! :) Glad you were able to calm BMW down with this hymn, the little cutie needs to let his Mama cook and get the dishes done! :) I really enjoyed singing along with the video you posted, the kids enjoyed it too, thanks for posting it!

What a precious story, my dear :) I remember those days...Whenever my little one was fussy I would play the piano and it always calmed him down :)

Thank you for sharing this lovely hymn with Roses of Inspiration. Hugs!
