Hannah’s Song

Since Hannah was a newborn, I have sang a special song to her.  Now it may not mean much to you but it is a song that I made up just for her.  Now let me give you a forewarning: I am not a songwriter, nor will the content move you.  But after all it is Hannah’s song. 

It goes:

Hannah Elizabeth, is so sweet
From her head down to her smelly feet
She’s so fine, she’s all mine
And I love her so much
Hannah Lou, Hannah Lou
From her head down to her shoe
Hannah Lou, Hannah Lou
Oh, how I love you!

I would sing this song to her every time that I would rock her to sleep.  Now 2 years later, I play my guitar and sing it to her.  I never thought she paid attention to the song much.  The other day, however, Hannah started singing the song on her own.  We were working around the house and she starts singing our song.  Talk about making my heart melt.

In our relationship with God, He has a song that He sings over us.  It is a song of rejoicing, a song of love.  Zephaniah 3:17, “The LORD your God in your midst, The Mighty One, will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing.”  God rejoices over us with singing.  He sings songs of love over you and I.  What’s more, one of the Hebrew phrases for rejoice in this verse, literally means, He dances over you.  God loves you and I so much that He dances over us with singing.

When we discover His love for us, we will have a song in our hearts too.  God sings over us and we should sing back to Him.
