“The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.” (Psalm 19:1)
Have you ever had a tune running through your head, but you can not think of the name of the song? You go around humming it, sometimes out loud hoping that someone will know the name of it? It is even worse when you have the lyrics of a song dancing around your head but cannot think of the song they came from.
Today’s verse reminds me of a song I heard on the radio and should know well, but for the life of me I cannot think of that the song is. And after doing multiple searches, and reading several different lyrics of several songs I am not even sure if I am remembering the verse or refrain correctly. And I so wanted to reference the song and talk about the connection of the verse noted above and the song it reminded me of. In all likelihood sometime in the future I will hear the song again, but by that point will not remember why I was trying to remember the song.
But perhaps the important point is that this sentiment inspired not only the writer of Psalm but generation after generation of writers of songs. I know this because I find several contemporary songs from recent years that echo the sentiments if not the exact words. As I said, I am not sure which song I was reminded of because the words/lyrics are all muddled up in my brain. But my spirit and my soul join and lift up in their own song to praise and worship God.
May you gentle reader raise up a song of praise and worship to our God whose glory and majesty are seen in creation. Selah!
