The Song of the Lord

The Song of The Lord

“God has prepared for Himself one great song of praise throughout eternity, and those who enter the community of God join in this song. It is the song that the “morning stars sang together and all the sons of God shouted for joy” at the creation of the world. (Job 38:7). It is the victory song of the children of Israel after passing through the Red Sea, the Magnificat of Mary after the annunciation, the song of Paul and Silas in the night of prison, the song of the singers on the sea of glass after their rescue, the “song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb” (Rev. 15:3) It is the song of the heavenly fellowship
― Dietrich Bonhoeffer

There are melodies discovered in dark places, graces developed in the oppression and angst of the soul. There are lyrics written upon the soul of His own; songs from the deep where Christ abides. They are but mere whispers of  glory which wind their way from heaven’s throne to bring the fragrance of a far away land where righteousness reigns and love is the atmosphere that His creatures there breathe.

Let not the clouds of the dim lands here hide for long the lightness and the buoyancy of the Song of Lord.

“And the ransomed of the Lord shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away”
Isaiah 35:10
