Lullaby for Reverendbaby

Tell me why the Ivy twines,
Tell me why the stars do shine,
Tell me why the sky's so blue,
Then I will tell you just why I love you.

Because God made the Ivy twine,
Because God made the stars to shine,
Because God made the sky so blue,
Because God made you that's why I love you.

I heard this song for the first time while listening to Garrison Keilor's A Prairie Home Companion. Garrison's sweet homely voice filled the kitchen and I felt his warmth.
We added this lullaby to our baby's baptismal service. I can hear it in my mind as I write this.

I'm singing to you now, to you and Reverendbaby.
