Psalm 96 1 & 2: O sing unto the LORD a new song: sing unto the LORD, all the earth. Sing unto the LORD, bless his name; shew forth his salvation from day to day.
Psalm 35:28: And my tongue shall speak of thy righteousness and of thy praise all the day long.
This poem was based on these verses, and my reaction to them. 🙂
Feel No Shame
I want to sing you praise,
I wish to worship You jovially
For all the rest of my days,
But I’m terribly off-key…
Perhaps I could instead play
Some music on a keyboard;
If only I knew of a way
To hit all of the right chords…
I hope You can look beyond my
Tone deafness as I sing, and see
The love I vocalize – or at least, I try
To carry a tune for Thee.
So instead, I’ll write You an ode
For someone else to vocalize, to spare
You hearing my voice like a toad,
Wafting to Heaven, way up there
Like a terrible aroma of sound.
I know, maybe I have got to
Stop, and hold my ground;
But then I read that I ought to
Praise Your name all day long.
Play an enthusiastic melody,
And fill the air with a vibrant song
To bring You, my Lord, glory
Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands. Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing. (Psalm 100 1 & 2) Nowhere does it say that I should only sing praises to God if I am on key. So even if I am not good at it, the Bible says do it, and that is enough for me! ♪ ♫
