A New Song: God Made Me A Helper (To the tune of I Love You A Bushel and A Peck)

God made me
A Helper-to-Be
A Helper-to-Be
For my family
My mom and daddy
and I can start right now
To please the Lord,
He'll give me strength somehow
I'll start now
To please God
Right now
A cheerful Helper I will be!

Just a simple little song for the younger girls at our mother-daughter tea. Listen to the original tune here, done by a cute couple of girl friends in nice harmony.

Hi Tania!
Actually, I had intended it specifically for girls because of the Genesis 1 passage that describes Eve as created to be "a suitable helpmeet" to Adam. Thus, we women have a calling as helpers, first to our fathers and then to our husbands. It defines us as women; whereas men are more defined as protectors and leaders and by their various vocations. But really, the song is just as useful to teaching a servant's attitude to boys as well. You go girl! May God give you strength in raising those boys of yours!

Thats a great way to introduce a womans roll to young girls. I think more churches need to take serious the Titus command for older women to teach the younger ones. I wish I had that. growing up and now!!
