Lord Jesus who dost love me,
Oh spread thy wings above me,
and shield me from all harm.
Though evil would assail me,
thy mercy will not fail me.
I rest in thy protecting arms.
I sing this to my boys every night. My mom sang it to me every night. Her dad sang it to her and her siblings.
Jordan refers to it as the "me" song (see the end of the lines) and demands it immediately when it's time to go to bed.
Thank you, Lord Jesus, for the comfort of knowing you are always there protecting me. And thank you for loving grandparents and parents who daily instilled this in me. Help me to do the same for my own boys. Amen.
