Sing a Song

Prayers, poems and hymns (or songs) are often very similar. They share a vividness and directness which encourage us in our lives and in our worship. The Psalms are an obvious example of all three. They address God with a huge richness of faith and experience, which can touch us very deeply.


How good it is to have our choir helping us pray and worship online on Sundays! And the individual voices singing familiar hymns are particularly poignant. We are not all there in church joining in. But we can hear the meaning of the words in a fresh way. And of course we can join in at home.


Near the beginning of what seems to have been such a long month, I remembered a simple and lovely song. And I found myself singing it often, enjoying its particular gift. So if a particular hymn or song comes to your mind, you too might want to respond to the promptings of memory. Singing can help us to step outside our boundaries, to rebel, even, against all that confines and limits us.


In case they mean something to you too, these are the words which came to my mind:


Be still and know that I am God.

Be still and know that I am God.

Be still and know that I am God.


I am the Lord that healeth thee.

I am the Lord that healeth thee.

I am the Lord that healeth thee.
