She Put the Music in Me

Evie Clair sings this song by Calee Reed for her mom on Mother’s Day. The lyrics are brilliant because they incorporate several LDS Primary songs familiar to millions of members. If you grew up going to primary, how many can you find?

It started with rock-a-bye, comforting when Id cry
All in her own style
Then popcorn before my eyes, turning frowns upside down
Into smiles
With songs of the birds up high, looking at the blue blue sky
The wind as it rushes by
Then leading me, guiding me, walking beside me she helped me
To walk in the light.

(Chorus)
She built my house on a rock
And she lives all that she taught
And she is all that a woman should be
She put the music in me

I knew He was really there, He heard my childs prayer
Answering from up above
She gave like a little stream, I was her sunbeam
And I felt my Saviors love
I saw her kneel and pray with our family every day
Listening to each whispered word
Gentle in deed and thought, all the things Jesus taught
Following promptings she heard

(Chorus)
She lives to search, ponder, pray
And she gives everyday
So her thanks will always be thanks indeed
She put the music in me

He made the tiny wings of each little bird that sings
In the leafy treetops up high
And all creatures great and small, I know God made them all
Because of her sweet lullaby

(Chorus)
Shes like a star shining bright and helps me to choose the right
And she gives me the hope of a life yet to be
She put the music in me
She is so good to me, Heavenly Father sent her to me
She taught me to lift up my voice and sing
She put the music in me.
She put the music in me.
She put the music in me.
