Psalm 100100 Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands.2 Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing.
3 Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
5 For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.
It seems that all little kids love to sing and be sung to. And while there surely is a place for fun children's songs, I think it is important to teach them that God made music for HIS glory. I love singing hymns and Scripture songs to the boys, and it is amazing how fast they can learn them. Not only are they having fun singing, but they are learning Scripture and sound theology while praising the Lord.
Part of our morning routine is to sing a hymn and read a portion of Scripture at breakfast time. This morning I captured just a few minutes of this. Someday these boys will be grown and I will miss the sweet sound of little voices singing "Holy, Holy, Holy."

Even at 17 months James knows some the words words and loves to sing along. His favorite hymn is "Be Thou My Vision" and he really belts that one out.
We sing all throughout our day, and it is worth every moment of it to hear these little ones praise the Lord.
