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

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.

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.

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.
