TITLE: The Music of Heaven

I have a confession to make. I'm finding it difficult to continue writing my new oddball story because of a sudden drop in enthusiasm and motivation. (It's probably happened to you too) So I'm taking a short break from it to work on some other ideas and hopefully renew my interest. A poem meditating on the beautiful music of Heaven. I think it could still use some work and I appreciate your suggestions. Thank you!
The music of the world from every land and time
From Jubal to this very day
It moves us, stirs us, shapes us, transforms us
And tells the world what we have to say

A beautiful gift from God, music is to us
Nothing like it could man ever fashion
A tool for every emotion, thought, and devotion
A voice for our ideals and passion

But the music of this world is simply no match
For the songs of the Creator's abode
Where the angels and saints sing out night and day
As they dance on the streets of gold

Alto, tenor, soprano, and bass
Voices of sinners whom Christ has redeemed
Men and women of every tongue and nation sing
In one language and glorious theme

The harp, the reed, the cymbals, the brass
Instruments from here and afar
The piano, the bells, the violin, and flute
The drums, the electric guitar

The loud and the soft, the fast and the slow
All together in one blissful blend
Like the souls of the believers gathered en masse
Understanding, harmony transcends

Hymns and contemporary, the old and the new
From every culture, genre, and kind
God loves every tune that reaches His ears
If the words with our hearts are aligned

In Glory the mute and deaf will sing, the lame will dance
All denominations will crumble away
Those who think they can't sing or never desire
Will join in and no longer delay

The grand music of Heaven, if you could just hear
Would shake you to your very core
To your knees you would fall and praise Him enthralled
It would seem like a challenge no more

Oh the music of Heaven, the music of Heaven
The melodies drifting around me
Coming from everywhere, every day without cease
To thank Him who formed and found me
---------------------

Note: I was completely serious about the electric guitar. I believe that God enjoys every style of music and instrument even if some don't prefer it. But that's just my thought.
