Since I'm more of a "loner" than most of my friends, I'm thankful God gave me this "people-song" which children— and families with children— love to sing. May you enjoy its encouraging message!
When I wrote the song back in 2003, our society seemed to enjoy a safer and saner culture, so today the song's themes are increasingly vital.
As you listen, perhaps God will bring some friend to your mind who would be blessed if you SHARE it with them on Facebook, or by an Email or Message link.

If you LIKE this video on my personal or "Heart Songs" Facebook page, you should be able to occasionally see my future videos. Thanks, and God bless you, until I can "sing with you" in person!
I LIKE TO SING WHEN I'M ALONE
1.I like to sing when I'm alone, but I'd rather you'd sing with me,
Sweet voices blended all in one make a happier harmony;
Yes, you can sing all by yourself, you need not be a throng,
But voices joined in harmony give a richer, sweeter song.
2.I like to hike when I'm alone, but I'd rather you'd hike with me,
I like to share the things you hear and see the things you see;
It is not wrong to hike along in solitude, alone,
But when we're walking hand-in-hand what a greater joy is known.
3.I like to work when I'm alone, but I'd rather you'd work with me,
A tedious task is quickly halved when "I" gives place to "we;"
Yes, you can work without my help, in hearty zeal and zest,
But when we're working side-by-side, then our work is doubly blest.
4.I like to pray when I'm alone, but I'd rather you'd pray with me,
Our Savior says there's extra pow'r where two or three agree;
Yes, when I'm at His throne alone it is a sacred place,
But when our prayers are joined in one, God gives us special grace.
