I sang the Shema(1) and Dona Nobis Pacem(2) to DD over and over again when she was little and I was hurting.

I also sang Indigo Girls "Your Love is Better than Chocolate" and "Hush Little Baby Don't say a word..." which DD liked especially because my rhymes were very silly and eventually I would trap myself and not be able to come up with anything.

ThyPeace, just sing.... sing a song.


(1) The "most important" Hebrew prayer, declaring monotheism for the entire religion. Shema Isra'el, Adonai Eloheinu, Adonai Echad. "Hear, O Israel. The Lord Our God, the Lord is One."

(2) I first heard "Dona Nobis Pacem" when watching M*A*S*H as a kid. Words and melody are here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dona_Nobis_Pacem_(canon)
