Having a baby is a roller coaster ride of sorts. It is both exhilarating and daunting to manage the feeding, diapers, laundry, food, and playtime all while trying to get sleep. But looking at a baby’s face and seeing their precious reactions make it all worth it.
One mother’s video went viral as she shares a beautiful moment with her baby boy.
Holding her little prince in her arms, she sings to him a song about Jesus and her baby boy responds to her.
The little prince is all smiles for mom’s voice.
Where most parents would choose to sing lullabies and nursery rhymes, mom Michelle Figueroa-Cardenas chose a worship song to serenade her boy. It is such a beautiful way to connect to a child.
She chooses a classic titled “Give me Jesus”. Michelle has a lovely voice too.
Mom takes time out and sings her heart out for her little one.
Michelle looks him in the eyes and sings:
“In the morning when I rise. In the morning when I rise. In the morning when I rise, give me Jesus.”
This sweet baby boy obviously loves it. He looks back up at his mom and just gives the sweetest most precious smile.
The moment is so touching and it reminds us of how innocent and pure babies are and that no matter how bad a day you’ve had, there’s always a reason to smile.
She sings a touching and powerful Christian song.
“Give me Jesus” finds its origins back in the time of slavery. It is an African-American spiritual song with each verse taking the focus off of a person’s circumstances, pain, and sufferings and directs the singer to focus on Jesus.
It was later interpreted by a Christian vocalist and songwriter named Juan Fernando Ortega.
Michelle couldn’t have picked a better song.
Her voice angelic and ascending to the heavens, she proceeds:
“Give me Jesus. Give me Jesus. You can have all this world but give me Jesus.”
Michelle is going to be one heck of a mom that’s for sure!
There are many benefits when singing to a baby.
It is something that transcends cultures. Mom’s will hush, coo, rock, and yes, sing to their babies to soothe them or put them to sleep. Changing the voice’s pitch, tempo, and gently rocking a baby is sure to shut those little eyes.
Singing helps strengthen the bond between a parent and their child and even helps a baby’s sense of awareness and attention. It helps set the mood as well which in turn may help with feeding and a child’s overall development.
Don’t shy away from singing to your little one no matter the quality of your voice.
Michelle’s Facebook video has been shared over 5,100 times with hundreds of thousands of views. Go through the comments section and it is a guarantee that your heart will be touched by the number of parents giving testimony and stating how beautiful a moment this truly is.
He went viral on Facebook and didn’t even know.
For new and experienced parents alike, don’t worry if you don’t have the voice of a rock star. Just pick an appropriate song and serenade your little one. It’s a memorable experience that you can look back on.
Michelle and her little boy have theirs and the world is thankful for it.
