Sing, My Heart!



Sing, my heart!
Sing, like Moses and Miriam,
“The Lord is my strength and my song,
He has hurled the horse and his rider into the sea.”
A song of triumph to the Lord.

Sing, my heart!
Sing, like Barak and Deborah,
Throwing off the hands of the oppressors,
Loosing the grip of Sisera.
A song of victory to the Lord.

Sing, my heart!
Sing, like Hannah to the Lord,
Who makes the barren give birth to many
And those who were hungry satisfied with food.
A song of exaltation to the Lord.

Sing, my heart!
Sing, like David, delivered from Saul,
“The Lord is my rock and my fortress,
He makes my arms bend a bow of bronze.”
A song of thanksgiving to the Lord.

Sing, my heart!
Sing, like Jabez, the honourable one,
Whose mother bore him with pain,
Who prayed, “Bless me indeed.”
A song of blessing to the Lord.

Sing, my heart!
Sing, like Job in suffering and pain,
Submitting to the Lord in adoration.
“Blessed be the name of the Lord.”
A song of affliction to the Lord.

Sing, my heart!
Sing, like Isaiah, of things unknown,
Revealing the future and glorious things.
The Messiah, coming as a Man.
A song of prophecy to the Lord.

Sing, my heart!
Sing, like Mary, a humble virgin,
The one chosen to bear the Lamb.
Sing of His mercy, holiness and grace.
A song of eloquence to the Lord.

Sing, my heart!
Sing, like Jesus, our Mighty Advocate,
The prayer of example He gave us to follow.
“Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Thy name.”
A song of prayer to the Lord.

Sing, my heart!
Sing, like Stephen, who sang even in death,
Who boldly accused the Pharisees,
And praised God while being stoned.
A song of death to the Lord.

Sing, my heart!
Sing, like Peter, the first rock of the church,
Who denied Christ three times, but
Praised God through much persecution.
A song of persecution to the Lord.

Sing, my heart!
Sing, like Paul and Silas, in the night,
Chained and in prison, yet singing
Hymns of praise to God in their misery.
A song of praise to the Lord.

Sing, my heart!
Sing, like John, waiting for the Lord
Singing of the Root, and the Bright Morning Star,
The Revealer, who says, “I am coming soon.’
A song of eternity to the Lord.

Sing, my heart!
Sing, like those who came before,
Men and women who praised God
Even in difficulty, death and pain.
A song of history to the Lord.
