When Music is Enough, if I did not have the Music

WHEN MUSIC IS ENOUGH
..............IF I DID NOT HAVE THE MUSIC


Sometimes I may be too shy to speak; I may stumble as I walk,
but with music my heart is made lighter, so that's the way I talk.
I may not go about as an intellectual; to you I may seem strange,
but a tune brings such transformation, an overwhelming change!
If I did not have my music, then how else would I dare,
to share my Saviour's blessings, when my throat's choked with a tear?
When my body feels so worn and torn, there seems no further step I can take,
Then thereís just strength enough to carry on when I do it for my Fatherís sake.


The music may not always be set to rhythm, groove, and sway
But a willingness and yearning, to travel the narrow way:
A small deed, a tiny seed, some time, a hug, and a smile,
The music of such selfless love, I pray that will last a while.
If I did not have that music filling way up in my soul,
Then in my very broken moments, how would I be made whole?
Some could write it in a diary, someone else, in whispered prayer,
but to ask his mercies o'er me, I sing a song, that He may hear.
I may not be a poet, with prose and words that rhyme,
I may not have the gift of Gab to pen a famous line,
But whatever small that I can do, Iíd love to play my part,
And sometimes when the rest canít work, I use the music in my heart.


My lips may shut in horror, and my hands in shame may shake,
But in sweet communion with Him, he doesn't notice my voice break.
For you the answer can be easily found, to others it comes naturally!
but I'm so enlightened every time I sing a haunting Melody.
I'm not enlightened for myself,í cause that's not my purpose here,
It is not my voice I'm showcasing, but rather a message clear:
One of joy, love, grace, and thanksgiving, those of mercy, and removed fears,
and oft times when I am saddened by and burdened with people's worldly cares.
So how then can I tell of love so pure and sweet and strong?
It's by opening up myself to a rhapsody of Heavenly song.


So sing it everybody, sing the Love that only Jesus gives,
Ďcause even though some crucify him with selfish habits, and misdeeds
He is lifted up again with Hosannahs, once again he Lives! By the Music...... in our hearts.
