These words from the Moravian Daily Text:
Praise the Lord! How good it is to sing praises to our God.
Psalm 147:1Paul wrote: Speak to one another with the words of psalms, hymns, and sacred songs; sing hymns and psalms to the Lord with praise in your hearts. Ephesians 5:19 (GNT)
O God from whom all blessings flow, when the echoes of songs and praises from Sunday grow dim, revive them in our hearts and minds. May the songs of grace accompany us to our classrooms, offices and homes this day. Amen.
Music can surely reach places in our hearts and minds that words simply cannot. I am always thankful for the hymns we sing in worship, often saying what I or the prayers have missed the mark to convey. And when a hymn sticks in my mind long after the notes have ended, well, that is quite the gift.
For all that I say thank you to those who share their gift of music making! It truly is a gift to the world.
