You Should Hear Him Sing

You Should Hear Him Sing
Words & Music by Corey Niemchick & Steve Siler

The staff here knows my name – knows my routine.
I come in after work and stay ‘til she’s asleep
I sit beside her bed, she talks to me
The only son of her son, I am her legacy.
She speaks my name – but then looks at me and says…

Won’t you sit with me and stay awhile?
My grandson’s coming soon
I know you’d like him – he’s a lot like you
And oh, you should hear him sing.

We talk about the pictures on her wall
Places she’s never been – with friends who’ll never call.
I brush her hair – we talk of Jesus’ love
Though her mind is weak somehow her faith is strong.
We sing a few old hymns – then she looks at me and asks again…

Won’t you sit with me and stay awhile?
My grandson’s coming soon
I know you’d like him – he’s a lot like you
And oh, you should hear him sing.

Yes, I will sit with you and stay awhile
I know your grandson’s coming soon
And when he does I know he’ll pray for you
And oh, I know then he will sing

What a Friend we have in Jesus all our sings and griefs to share
What a privilege to carry everything to God in prayer

The staff here knows my name – knows my routine.
I come in after work and stay ‘til she’s asleep

The best moment on Dignity is the break into “What A Friend We Have in Jesus” that happens in You Should Hear Him Sing. And not just because that’s one of my favorite songs. It’s a marvelous moment.

You Should Hear Him Sing brought me to tears and pulled my heart strings as surely as the soulful songs of Les Mis.
