Isaiah's Lullaby

My wife wrote this lullaby for our son, and we can't wait to sing it to him in person when he arrives in thirty-four days...give or take.

Isaiah, Isaiah
Beautiful baby
Isaiah, Isaiah
Wonderful boy

You are loved
The world is your friend
You will be loved
Beyond the end

You are adored
Provided, and guided
You are strong
You are tender
Isaiah

What a perfectly sweet song you have stuck in my head! :D

My favorite is the very last part -- so lovely for a brand new boy.

Sounds like it could be a Church song! Which is a good thing. Very pretty song. :) Also, I now know how to pronounce your little boy's name. ;)

That's a tearjerker.

Too sweet!

That is really beautiful. Strong and tender is perfect. Just what a little boy should be.
What a lucky boy Isaiah is to have such loving parents to show him how to live in this world. The world will definitely be a nicer place because of your family.

Aw, that's sweet!

Btw, I saw you at the UCLA book festival a couple (few?) years back...and you read an excerpt from your book. Even then, I knew it would be a success :-D
