Lest I forget...

My sweet Drew, so proud to be four-almost-five, has become enamored with a new song.

It is not uncommon for children to fixate on a song, singing it over and over ad nauseum, but this time is different.

This time, my son is not only fixated on the song, he is fixated on Who the song is about.

He asks me to sing it with him at every bedtime.  As I sing, he looks into my eyes adoringly and joins in, heartfelt and only slightly off-key.   His eyes, almost ebony, shine with joy.  He serenades us in the car, reminding us that it is about Jesus, who died on the cross to save us from our sins.

Those are his words, at four-almost-five.

It is a song I have known for a long time but has taken on new meaning, a fuller meaning, when sung with my baby boy and I love with all of my heart that he loves this song so much...

Here I am to worship, here I am to bow down,
here I am to say that you're my God.
You're altogether lovely, altogether worthy,
altogether wonderful to me.

I'll never know how much it cost 
to see my sin upon that cross.
I'll never know how much it cost
to see my sin upon that cross.

Oh, that his sweet heart of worship will only grow stronger...


  1. I LOVE that song too! What a sweet boy you have there!


  2. I am with him on that. I often tear up when I get to sing the song for real. Thank-you for that reminder.


Let's keep the conversation going...
