Hymn Text: Within God’s Choir

Date: May 1st, 2017

Title: Within God’s Choir

Meter: 8 6 8 6 D

Topic: music, praise, expression, belonging

1.

Our Father gives us songs to sing

Reveals the words divine,

That complement the voice we bring

To the choir’s grand design.

 

Our love for God’s the melody

We sing with fervent joy

Obedience’s the harmony

We lovingly employ.

2.

Sometimes our song is only heard

By heaven’s holy ears

When agony prevents a word

From breaking through the tears.

 

Our God will help us sing again

Though soft our voice may be,

He heals our dissonance and then

Allows us to sing free.

3.

There’s always room within the choir

For voices of all kinds

Both strong and weak can still aspire

To sing God’s holy lines.

 

For every people, race, and sort

Can sing and can belong.

All those who mourn can there resort

And find peace in the song.
