Singing a hymn for your baby every time you put her down to sleep has many benefits:
- it establishes a peaceful routine,
- you are teaching her to pray,
- there is a special song in her heart,
- you get to beautifully tap into God multiple times during the day,
- the words of the song take on numerous meanings.
If you use the same song every time then this becomes almost a magical song for her and will bring peace even much much later in life when she hears it. This baby song makes an easy “go to” for prayer as a toddler.
