This song came straight from my heart one night as I prayed over my sleeping daughter. As I stared at her beautiful frame I was just moved to tears by what an amazing gift from God she really is. She was born with neurofibromatosis and is considered legally blind. Some would have advised while she was still in the womb that I should have had an abortion because she isn’t “perfect”. That would have been a tragedy. As this song has been passed around it has been used in many different ways- pro-life rallies, baby dedications, Mother’s Day events, weddings, and as a simple lullaby sung over a sleeping baby. My hope is that this song would inspire all mothers to pray over their babies, no matter how old, and to see the value of human life.

  1. I first came across this song 6 years ago when I was pregnant with my son. I played it every single day while he was in my tummy. He is such an amazing little being. God is good and I am truly blessed to have my Salvatore.

  2. This song is so beautiful. I used it at my twins dedication. Brings a tear to my eyes everytime I hear it, sums up the prayer I have for my girls perfectly.

  3. I dedicate this lovely song to my 4 months strong 💪 zealous son (King) Josiah Jehovah healed. For year before he was born I was fighting for my life on my death bed a year after the lord healed me and family gifted us this wonderful handsome boy

  4. I tried to go and purchase this song. It says "it's been removed or moved" Could you please direct me to wear we can buy an mp3? I would like to sing this song, with track. Thanks,

  5. Verse:
    My sweet baby on loan from above. 
    No better treasure could I more love. 
    I stand here beside your bed as I pray 
    Ilay my hand on your head and I say: 

    Chorus:
    May you grow up to serve Him 
    All of your days. 
    May He lead you and guide you 
    In all of your ways. 
    May His hand bless your future with 
    Friendships that last. 
    May you cherish your youth 
    And not grow up too fast 

    Verse:
    I stare in wonder at your tiny frame. 
    Just to think that God knows you by name. 
    He knows every hair on your beautiful head. 
    He knows your thoughts before they are said. 

    Chorus:
    May you grow up to serve Him 
    All of your days 
    May He lead you and guide you 
    In all of your ways. 
    May His Hand bless your future with 
    Friendships that last. 
    May you cherish your youth 
    And not grow up too fast. 

    Prayer:
    May God grant you peace 
    In the midst of a storm. 
    May God give you strength even 
    When you’re forlorn. 
    May you answer the door when 
    Jesus comes knocking. 
    May wisdom guide when 
    Your mouth is talking. 
    May discretion protect you 
    And keep you pure. 
    May you never stumble 
    Or fall for a lure. 
    May your heart remain humble 
    To the very end. 
    May uprightness and truth 
    Be what you defend. 
    May the world not ensnare 
    Or change who you are. 
    May the light that's within you 
    Shine like the stars. 
    May angels surround you 
    Body, spirit, mind. 
    May favor and peace be yours to find. 
    May rejection and pain 
    Never reach you. 
    May your spirit grow bold 
    For what you’re called to. 

    Chorus:
    May you grow up to serve Him 
    All of your days 
    May He lead you and guide you 
    In all of your ways 
    May His Hand bless your future with 
    Friendships that last. 
    May you cherish your youth 
    And not grow up too fast. 

    Singing:
    As you rest in God’s care I will rest, too. 
    Knowing that Jesus is watching over you. 
    Amen

  6. There is nothing as wonderful in this life as a baby. I'm glad I was blessed with one of my own and many spiritual children. I wish I could have had a dozen more!
