I listened to Oldies of the 50’s and 60’s, on the radio, when they were current hit songs. Some improve with age. When I hear the first few notes of favorite songs of that era, I drift away both emotionally and mentally to a time and place where I no longer dwell. Today, the old Song of Moses brings to mind, what I have experienced only through reading of his solid gold song. God recorded the lyrics in Deuteronomy.
The first verses of Moses’ Song both inspire and motivate me to sing along…
“LISTEN, O HEAVENS and earth!
Listen to what I say!
My words shall fall upon you
Like the gentle rain and dew,
Like rain upon the tender grass,
Like showers on the hillside.
I will proclaim the greatness of the Lord.
How glorious he is!
He is the Rock. His work is perfect.
Everything he does is just and fair.
He is faithful, without sin (Deuteronomy 32:1-4 Living Bible).”
