I don’t go to church anymore because I’m lazy. I hope it’s one of the 7 deadly sins I can beg forgiveness of. I think my favorite part of church is the music. I just get a kick at how dang happy people are when they’re singing in the name of JEEESUS! I’ve talked before about how my sister and I, to this day, belt out lines of our favorite Catholic School church tunes…there’s just something catchy about them, but this song is one of my favorites. I’ve never actually heard it sung at church, and I’m not even sure it can be categorized as a “church song”, but when a really talented singer tackles it I get goosebumps every time.
My love affair with this song began with Justin Timberlake and Matt Morris’s version on ABC during a show raising money for Haiti after the earthquake:
This version is sung by Jaymee Dee…a famous YouTuber and you’ll see why here:
I’ve shared this video before in my adorable babies and daddies video post, but I think watching him put his baby to sleep while singing this song is worth another nod:
