“Yes, Jesus Loves Me.” // A Mother’s Song

This week as we honor our mothers, we’re so blessed to share a scripture & song from our guest, Caitlyn Scaggs, of New Hope Girls.

My mom, Cynthia, is a living example of Psalm 78:4,  “We will not hide them from their children, but tell to the coming generation the glorious deeds of the Lord, and his might, and the wonders that he has done.

When I think of my childhood I can hear my mom singing to me:

“Jesus loves me, this I know.
For the Bible tells me so.
Little ones to Him belong,
They are weak but He is strong.
Yes, Jesus loves me.
Yes, Jesus Loves me.
Yes, Jesus loves me,
The Bible tells me so.”

The beautiful simplicity of that song is profound. It is truth she instilled as she rocked me, while I was a colicky baby, and words she reminded me of as I was a moody teenager. They are words that she never let me forget, as I took a hold of my faith with both hands. On good days, the words of this song are true. During tough times, they are just as true. These are words she has sung over my children now, as she delights in her role as “Grandy.”
