Shower Song

Oh, what a wonderful, wonderful day! Day I will never forget. After I wandered in darkness alone, Jesus my Savior I met. Oh, what a tender, compassionate friend. He met the need of my heart. Shadows dispelling, with joy I am telling, He made all the darkness depart!

Heaven came down and glory filled my soul. When at the cross, the Savior made me whole. My sins were washed away, and my night was turned to day. Heaven came down and glory filled my soul!

This is my shower song.

I love showering. I love taking baths. I love swimming. Heck, I love water in general!

Each morning when I shower, I’m filled with joy. I don’t know what it is, but all that water just makes me deep-down-to-my-toes happy. And when I’m happy, I love to sing.

For some reason, this song is always the first one that comes to mind. I don’t know why. I learned it a long time ago at my Christian school, and for some reason, I easily recall the lyrics and the wonderful melody.

My second go-to shower song is Friend of a Wounded Heart which is a much more serious song, but it seems to be firmly cemented in my shower repertoire.

I shower-sing Heaven Came Down so much that it has permeated Brett’s subconscious. The other day he was humming it and even said, “What IS that song?” I had to quickly turn away before he saw my smile.

So, how about you? Do you sing in the shower?

If so, what’s your shower song, and why do you love it?

I don't sing in the shower, but my son does. Well, technically he does't sing, he shouts and screams in the shower. It's never the same song, sometimes, he even makes them up!

I love shower singing. It's almost as fun as car singing. That is probably sort of obvious, but I usually find myself doing "Singin' in the Rain"!
