Music Notes

My life flows on in endless song above earth's lamentation
I hear the real though far off hymn that hails a new creation
No storm can shake my inmost calm while to that rock I'm clinging
It sounds an echo in my soul how can I keep from singing?


What though the tempest round me roars I know the truth, it liveth
What though the darkness round me close songs in the night it giveth
No storm can shake my inmost calm while to that rock I'm clinging
Since love is Lord of heaven and earth how can I keep from singing?


I lift my eyes, the cloud grows thin I see the blue above it
And day by day this pathway smooths since first I learned to love it
The peace of Christ makes fresh my heart a fountain ever springing
All things are mine since I am his how can I keep from singing?

 

Today, I was moved to quote the lyrics of this particular piece.  It happened to be one of the favorites of a previous minister, Scott Hohn.  But I don’t believe that is why I brought you these words.  There are times in my life that I go through spiritual deserts and I feel that many others do as well.  I subscribe to these words and feel that they remind us of what is really important. 

And folks, I believe that I could have simply added “nuff said” to the end and closed.  I think these words are a devotional in themselves.  May they bless you this week.

God bless,

Billy
