Lullaby - Thank You Lord for This Day of Care

Not only did I have a little theme song for William our cat, which I was able to turn into a little lullaby, I also had one for our other cat Mimi.

Her lyrics were "Little Mimi, little Mi-mi-mi," etc., and I often sing it to her as I'm carrying her into the house at night. Wanting again to do something spiritual with it, and although it has some cha-cha-sounding syncopation in it when played a little faster, slowing it down made it sort of like a lullaby again to me, and being short like William's song, I put some quick lullaby-esqe words to it, and here is how this one turned out:

Thank you Lord for this day of care
And the graces you did kindly share!
If you please grant us rest
May your name eternally be blessed!

Thank You Lord for This Day of Care

And this is a musical audio of the arrangement:

When I started to score it, I wasn't sure how to write the syncopation in measures two and four; even though they're technically 4/3 with the last two notes tied, that just seemed more complicated in trying to read it than to just write it out the way I did, a little more literally.

Anyway, as before, I'm pleased and thankful to be able to do a little something with the little tune the Lord granted. :)

We always pray the Lord glorify Himself through us in whatever way He may, and maybe even through a simple little melody!
