Are there any little people in your life? Young children, grandchildren, or pre-school students? If yes, you might enjoy hearing today’s sample from The Toddler’s Songbook. (Simply click on the arrow above to begin.)
He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands
When you get to the 2nd verse – “He’s got the wind and the rain in his hands” – listen carefully. It’s the voice of our middle son, Nate – recorded when he was eleven or twelve years old. I won’t tell you how old Nate is now, but he and his wife have a little tucker of their own.
At the time this song was recorded, Nate had no idea he would eventually have opportunities to travel the whole wide world – but he has. During the six or seven years he’s been working for Ravi Zacharias International Ministries, he’s made many around-the-world trips.
I’m guessing that Psalm 66:8-9 inspired the person who originally wrote this song – “Let the whole world bless our God and loudly sing his praises. Our lives are in his hands . . . ” I’m grateful for the reminder.
I hope that you – and the little people in your life – enjoy the music.
