365 Days of the Great Names of God, Day 48: Song


"The Lord is my strength and my song; He has become my salvation. This is my God, and I will praise Him." (Exodus 15:2 CSB)

Songs communicate truth in a way that nothing else can quite match. They tell of passions, hopes, hurts, and joys. When they are anthems, they declare what we believe in and who has our loyalty. When God is our song, we sing of His goodness, majesty, and love. We declare, with words and melodies, that He has our allegiance. 

God gives us a song to sing, but no one has to give Him one, because He is the song. He is everything eternal there is to sing about. 

He is the Singer. He is the Song.

"You are the love song we'll sing forever,

Bowing before You, blessing Your name.
Holy, holy, Lord God Almighty,
Worthy is the Lamb Who was slain.
Highest praises, honor and glory,
Be unto Your name, be unto Your name."

("Be Unto Your Name," words and music by Lynn DeShazo and Gary Sadler,

I'd love to hear from you! Feel free to tell me what you really think. Years ago, I explained to my then-two-year-old that my appointment with a counselor was "sort of like going to a doctor who will help me be a better mommy." Without blinking, she replied, "You'd better go every day." All of which is just to say I've spent some time in the school of brutal honesty!
