Some days the song in my heart is a simple, “I need thee, Oh I need thee. Every hour I need thee”.
Other days it’s a jubilant, “You’re a Good, Good Father, that’s Who You are!”
I can still remember songs that I learned as a child, and the music in my head often comes from a secret place deep within my heart.
My feelings cannot be trusted, so when the songs in my heart reflect truth,
regardless of circumstances,
my simple words become an offering of praise:
“How great is our God! Sing with me, how great is our God!”
“Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty!
“You’re my hiding place, safe in Your embrace, I’m protected from the storm that rages.”
“He is able, more that able, to accomplish what concerns me today…” because,
“in Christ alone, my hope is found, He is my light, my strength, my song.”
And “Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus, just to take Him at His Word.”
“The B-I-B-L-E, yes that’s the book for me!”
“I will choose to listen and believe the Voice of Truth”…
“then sings my soul, my Savior God to thee!”
“O victory in Jesus, my Savior forever…”
“Let my lifesong sing to You!
“Bless the Lord, O my soul! O my soul, worship His Holy Name! Sing like never before, O my soul! I’ll worship Your Holy name!”
You see, it’s not the songs of the past, present, or future that determine my worship–
it’s the song in my heart.
The ones that come out of a heart that is full. Full of awe and wonder and love.
That the God of the universe would love me.
He loves you too, you know. And He longs to fill your heart with a song as well.
“Let me be singing when the evening comes!”
