It started with rock-a-bye, comforting when I'd 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 child's prayer Answering from up above She gave like a little stream, I was her sunbeam And I felt my Savior's 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:] She's 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.
