Favorite daily songs?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I am wishing to learn some new daily songs to sing to my 16 month old during our day. Any one have any favorite (easy for me to learn) ones they can share with me? 

Thank you,

-Nicole

We just picked up a copy of Seven Times the Sun and there are lots of songs in there for all times of the day. We are still learning them but just wanted to throw that out as a resource. I have seen in at the library in some areas we've lived.

 

Here is a little verse I like in the morning as we look out the window:

 

Good morning dear earth, good morning dear sun

Good morning dear stones, and flowers each one

Good morning dear bees, and birds in the trees

Good morning to you, and good morning to me

 

And we use Brahms lullaby for our night song. 

 

Lullabye, and goodnight

With lilies of white 

And roses of red

To pillow your head

May you wake when the day

Chases darkness away

May you wake when the day

Chases darkness away

 

Another good one for bedtime is: 

 

I see the moon and the moon sees me

Down through the leave of the old oak tree

Please let the moon that shines on me

Shine on the ones I love 

(you can google other verses and hear the tune - its sweet)

I second Seven Times the Sun.  Also, the various books like Gateways, Spindrift and the corresponding seasons have many songs, poems and stories in them.  Here are two of our favorites from STTS:

 

Good morning, good morning,

Good morning to you. 2x

Good morning's what we say,

Good morning's what we do.

Good morning, good morning,

Good morning to you.

 

The angel hovers tenderly,

pulls down the shade.

Shadows grow long.

Sleepy eyes fade,

in the dusklight,

the moonlight,

the starlight,

Good night.
