Mother Sings 'Give Me Jesus' To Smiling Baby

This infant baby is all smiles when his mother sings 'Give Me Jesus' to him. Just watch the sweet moment when Michelle Figueroa-Cardenas serenades her son with the words of this worship song.


“In the morning, when I rise
In the morning, when I rise
In the morning, when I rise
Give me Jesus”

This classic hymn is always a favorite. It was originally written in the 1800s as an African-American spiritual hymn, but over the years the lyrics have been modernized. The most famous interpretation comes from Fernando Ortega, a Dove award-winning singer and songwriter. Today, this talented mother is singing the words straight to her child and it’s a heartwarming moment to witness.

There’s no doubt that children are truly a gift from God. These precious babes start as infants and gradually turn into little people with their own unique personalities. Through expression, this little boy can show his mom just how much he enjoys her serenade. And that smile on his face is absolutely contagious. He may be just a baby, but this little guy is already learning that Jesus is the way and the truth. What a blessing to hear this sweet song.

Psalm 127:3-5 “3 Children are a heritage from the LORD, offspring a reward from him. 4 Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one’s youth. 5 Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their opponents in court.”
