When I Leave the Room

I've had this song in my head off and on since I heard it a couple months ago. I sing parts of it to Christian almost every night before I put him to bed. The first time I heard it, I cried. Not just tears in my eyes, full on CRYING. Natalie Grant's songs have spoken to me in the past, but this one is exactly how I feel on a daily basis with my little man. At the end of the day all I can do is thank God for our little blessing and giving me the strength to be mother than Christian needs. Through struggles and failures, I will be on my knees seeking guidance and asking Jesus to watch over him when I can not (and even when I can) be there for him. The song is "When I Leave the Room" and here are the lyrics. 

Good night, Looks like we made it through the day
The moon sighs and I know that we're okay
Sleep tight, I love to watch you drift away
I would come with you but on my knees I'll stay

Good night, Five little fingers holding mine
Take flight, Into your dreams and lullabyes
There's nothing more that I can do
But just fall more in love with you
And ask the angel armies to stand by
When I leave the room

I'm gonna fail you, I already have
Ten thousand times I will fall down flat
You'll have a seat in the front row
of everything I don't know
And all I'm trying to be
You'll see

Good night, There will be storms that we come through
In time, We will slay dragons me and you
I'll always wanna hold you tight
Keep you safe with all my might
So I will leave Jesus next to you
When I leave the room

And you will run ahead
As if you know the way
And I will pray more
Then once you'd have to pray
There will be words we can't take back
Silences too
And I'll be on my knees, You'll see

One night, When I am old and unsteady
You'll want me to fight
But I'll tell you that I'm ready
When there's nothing left to do
I will still be loving you
Then you'll fold your fingers into mine
And I will let Jesus hold you tight
When I leave the room

Here is the video from YouTube. Mommies, have the tissues ready!
