What are some of your favorite songs – Christian or secular – about family life? Feel free to share them here.
Here’s a hymn that DH and I used to sing at the piano when we were first married… and now I sing it to my babies. It’s so simple, yet beautiful and inspiring.
“Sing of Mary, Pure and Lowly”
Sing of Mary, pure and lowly
Virgin mother undefiled.
Sing of God’s own son most holy
Who became her little child.
Fairest child of fairest mother
Lord of all, who came to earth
Word made flesh, our very brother
Takes our nature by his birth.
Sing of Jesus, son of Mary
In the home at Nazareth.
Toil and labor cannot weary
Love enduring unto death.
Constant was the love He gave her
Though He went forth from her side;
Forth to preach and heal and suffer
Till on Calvary he died.
Such precious images! I wish there were more hymns about the Holy Family’s domestic life.
