    Psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs

    I love this verse:

    Ephesians 5:19Speak to one another with psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your hearts to the Lord, 20always giving thanks to God the Father for everything in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

    This morning, as I was listening to some hymns, it dawned on me why I loved them so much... because they deal with where doctrine meets life. When I listen to a hymn such as "great is thy faithfulness" I remember the hard times, when things didn't go my way, or turn out as I had hoped, where I had lost hope, or lost much, and I didn't know where the Lord was at... or understand what He was doing.... I still can proclaim that He was faithful to me. Never did he let me go. He held my right hand. He was faithful to me, when I was embittered within because He didn't fix things. Instead, he was working on fixing me. He's not done.

    Why do you like hymns? or singing psalms? or spiritual songs?
    Matt 9:13
    13 "But go and learn what this means: ' I DESIRE COMPASSION,AND NOT SACRIFICE,' for I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners."
    NASU

    Re: Psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs

    Before the throne of God above
    I have a strong and perfect plea:
    A great High Priest, whose name is Love,

    Who ever lives and pleads for me.
    My name is graven on His hands,
    My name is written on His heart;
    I know that while in heaven He stands
    No tongue can bid me thence depart
    No tongue can bid me thence depart.

    When Satan tempts me to despair,
    And tells me of the guilt within,
    Upward I look, and see Him there
    Who made an end to all my sin.
    Because the sinless Savior died,
    My sinful soul is counted free;
    For God the just is satisfied
    To look on Him and pardon me
    To look on Him and pardon me

    Behold Him there, the Risen Lamb
    My perfect, spotless righteousness,
    The great unchangeable I am,
    The King of glory and of grace!
    One with Himself I cannot die
    My soul is purchased by His blood
    My life is hid with Christ on high,
    With Christ, my Savior and my God
    With Christ, my Savior and my God
