The Lullaby Of His Love 

  
I am not sure anything else in the world expresses the vulnerable love of one person for another more than a lullaby. A lullaby is the ultimate picture of a person in a position of protection and love being moved to song by intense and tender love for the weaker, defenseless one in his or her care. God expresses this to us with the following verses:

 

The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; He will save, He will rejoice over thee with joy; He will rest in His love, He will joy over thee with singing. Zephaniah 3:17

 

The moment Jesus came up out of the baptismal waters, the skies opened up and he saw God’s Spirit—it looked like a dove—descending and landing on him. And along with the Spirit, a voice: “This is my Son, chosen and marked by my love, delight of my life.” Matthew 3:16-17

 

Compare the two verses above. Is there any difference in how God regards us versus how He regards His beloved Son?

 

Imagine Him standing over us as we sleep and singing us the lullaby of His love, expressed through the song of His own son. It is a sweet picture of the Father’s heart toward us, that He called shepherds, wisemen, angels and Mary and Joseph to do the same over His precious baby – His ultimate gift to the world.

Virgin’s Lullaby

 

I am a shepherd 

Humbled by heaven’s bright star 

I’ve nothing to offer 

But the peace I hold in my heart 

The night I saw the Heaven’s open 

As angels filled the sky 

Nothings ever touched my soul 

Like a virgin’s lullaby 
Sleep tonight 

Close your eyes 

Oh child of mine 

You bring the world love 

Glory divine 
We are the kings 

Traveled so far from the east 

Bearing gifts 

To lay before the Prince of Peace 

We’ve seen the world and all its wonder 

But here before our eyes 

Humbled by the miracle 

Of a virgin’s lullaby 
Sleep tonight 

Close your eyes 

Oh child of mine 

You bring the world love 

Glory divine 
We are the angels 

Sent from the throne of high 

To join in this lullaby 

His praises we sing 
Sleep tonight 

Close your eyes 

Oh child of mine 

You bring the world love 

Glory divine 
Let your light shine 

Bring the world love 

Glory divine
