"pon" song

Tucking in Preston last night, he curled up with his two bears and milk and asked me to "sing pon song mommy". We went round and round that I had no idea what song he was talking about. I thought he was saying farm, so I sang Old McDonald had a Farm... He stopped me in the middle of of "here a quack, there a quack" emphatically saying, "NO, PON SONG!", finally after much discussion I said "upon?" "Turn your eyes UPON Jesus?" (this is not usually in the rotation)
As I sang, he closed his eyes, hugged his bears and said "goodnight mommy".

Turn your eyes upon Jesus
Look full in his wonderful face
And the things of this earth
will grow strangely dim
In the light of his glory and grace

Thank you, Preston, for the reminder

Oh, P! How sweet. That's one of my favorite, too.
