I will sing to the LORD all my life

I will sing to the LORD all my life;I will sing praise to my God as long as I live. - Psalm 104:33

Tonight a friend is staying over. We stayed up late talking about music and pulled out all the hymnbooks. I also introduced her to two good links for finding and learning new hymns are The Cyber Hymnal and MIDI音楽 1382曲集.

Do you always feel like singing? What happens when your heart is so heavy the songs don't come out anymore?

When my heart is heavy is when I sing the most!

"Day by Day"... "Never Give Up"... "I Need Jesus"... "Count Your Blessings"... "Does Jesus Care"..."Tell It to Jesus"... "I Must Tell Jesus"... "Jesus Saviour Pilot Me"... " "Pass Me Not"... "What a Friend We Have In Jesus"... "Guide Me, O Thou Great Jehovah"... "Leaning On the Everlasting Arms"... "He Hideth My Soul"... "Rock of Ages"..."My Jesus as Thou Wilt"...

Songs written because the people before us had heavy hearts, too!

How about the Negro Spirituals? Think of the pain that birthed those songs!

We'll be praying!
