Blessings Great and Small

The Song I Sing

 


Colossians 3:17
New Living Translation (NLT)

17 And whatever you do or say, do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through him to God the Father.


The Song I Sing

Could it be the turkey golden?
Roasting in a silvery pan,
Or perhaps the stuffing savory,
Spicy aroma from a foreign land,

Corn and cobbler,
Beans and beets,
Rolls and cornbread,
A plethora of tasty treats,

Cakes and pies,
Coffee and tea,
And all day long
There’s football on the tv,

Could it be that’s why I thankful?
Could it be all that I desire?
Or could there be a grander blessing?
One that’s worthy to inspire,

A blessing far beyond the day,
A blessing of a lifetime,
Given life and having lost it,
You paid the price for my every crime,

That’s the thankful song I sing,
And I sing it again and again,
You loved me with a love so grand,
Had you not, where would I have been.

Father,

Thank You for sending Your son to set me free. There is no greater blessing. Nothing else to be so thankful for.

They Will Sing a New Song

Night Bird

 


Revelation 14:3
New Living Translation (NLT)

3 This great choir sang a wonderful new song in front of the throne of God and before the four living beings and the twenty-four elders. No one could learn this song except the 144,000 who had been redeemed from the earth.


The Night Bird’s Song

Somewhere within the night bird’s song
There is a longing in her soul,
She cries unto an unknown god
To comfort and console,

But though she cries the whole night long
With all that she can muster,
Nothing ever comes of it
And her soul is left lackluster,

So long I sang that self-same song,
I sang it day and night,
Until one evening I heard a voice
That brought the dawning of the light,

So now I sing a different song,
It is my soul’s delight,
I wish that you might sing it too
And join in this heavenly flight,

Where birds and men can soar up high
As though on angel wings,
And come to know the pleasures
Unknown by earthly kings.

Father,

Thank You for speaking to us from above. Your word makes all the difference.

What Makes Up Your Song?

Song

Romans 12:4-5
New Living Translation (NLT)

4 Just as our bodies have many parts and each part has a special function, 5 so it is with Christ’s body. We are many parts of one body, and we all belong to each other.


The Truth of the Song

It seems so very simple
If you give it just a glance
But a song is made of many parts
If you give it half a chance

First it has a melody
Some music, if you will
A composition of the soul
To give the heart a thrill

Yet hand in hand the lyrics walk
To give meaning to the tale
Without those very special words
The song’s story would surely fail

The story’s set in verses
Each one tells us but a part
Followed by the same refrain
That sets each verse apart

Then every song must have a beat
To set the tapping of the drum
It sets the tone of how it feels
And starts the listener to hum

And there exists a genre
That envelops it all the while
It might be folk or roll and rock
That gives away its style

So you see, as with many things
They’re more complicated than they appear
And we must know what’s going on out of sight
Before their value becomes quite clear
