Hey Jude, revised

Our good friend David Dabney came by the other night with a beautiful gift for Jude. David is a really wonderful musician and artist and has blessed our church with his original music over the last year. David recorded his version of Hey Jude for us and then came over with his guitar for a little personal concert. Jude loves music and was mesmerized by David and his guitar. The reworked lyrics are below, what a blessing for our son to have this sung over him.




Hey, Jude, don't make it bad

Take a sad song and make it better

Remember to let Him into your heart

Then He can start to make it better


Hey, Jude, don’t be afraid

You were saved by our Lord, Perfector

The minute you let Him under your skin

Then He begins to make it better.


What a blessed giving in, may Jude begin

To seek the One whom he belongs with

And any time you feel the pain, just call His Name

He’ll give you voice to sing a song with


Hey, Jude- we’ll let you down

But there’s One who’ll never fail you

He wants you to love with all of your heart

To let you take part in making earth better


And any time you feel the pain, just call My Name

You will learn as you get older

We spend forever loving you-hey, Jude, We do,

My hand is always on your shoulder


Hey, Jude, don’t you be sad

Put your hope in something better

Remember to let Him into your heart

Then He can start to make it better

The is song is awesome - what a wonderful memory to have- albeit, he will have to remember it with the video!. He is so adorable. Can't tell you how envious I was of Sandra and Debbie's visit on the 28th. Jude is sooo adorable and I know you are both Great parents.
