Heavenís Treasure


What soothes my soul when it needs rest
And fills me with joy and happiness?
What can change my mood from gray
And chase dark clouds of doubt away?
What is it that calms my fears
And wipes away the salt of tears
That fall so softly down my cheek
In moments when my soul feels weak?

What can lift my soul to heights
As I worship God in sweet delight?
Songs of praise or sacred hymns ---
Those things bring me close to Him.
Prayerful song sung low and sweet
Or anthem loud laid at His feet,
Both can be an offering
If it is for Him we sing.

What stirs my soul and over-fills
My heart until emotion spills
From eye to cheek to quivíring chin---
I dare not try to hold it in.
Itís music---one of Heavenís treasures
Givín in time and bar and measure.
Rich, sweet sounds of worship flowing
Praise Creator God as our love offering.

What can lift my soul to heights
As I worship God in sweet delight?
Songs of praise or sacred hymns ---
Music brings me close to Him.
Like King David, let us sing and dance!
Give God all praise with every chance.
For words and notes in symphony
Bring man and God in harmony.
