Musical Stirrings

Sing Your song, Singer. Sing Your love song to me.

Sing through the white caps’ shush-hushing, churn-burning. Inspire me to finish the race, to run and not grow weary.

Sing through the red-winged blackbirds’ trills. Soothe my weariness; fill my heart with the harmony of heaven.

Sing through the oak leaves’ crack-crackling in the canopy overhead. Protect and shelter me: russ-rustle, shhhhhhh.

Sing through staccato raindrops’ pattering on the cabin roof. Exhort me with the drilling urgency of a whole orchestra of drumsticks.

Sing as if tomorrow will never come, as if today might suddenly vanish, as if I might come home to You before the sun sets. Sing because I long to hear Your promise of hope.

Sing in my heart, Your strength to impart; sing me a psalm, Your healing balm.

Sing to my tears, sing to my fears; sing with the music of the spheres.

Sing your song, Singer. Sing Your love song to me.
