“Why? Do we do the things we do? How do we sing? When there is no reason to, How do we smile? When there’s not much to smile about, when the world is down, who are we to stand and shout?
They wonder why, we do the things we do….”
Lyrics from one of my favourite songs. Its an old one, like they say you don’t get it as good as vintage. Isn’t it the same for this “mystery” behind why we sing?
A reason so simple when we lift our hands spontaneously, burst out in tears and praise people still ask why? But the ones who know will join us and its a firey spark of curious grins, or irked up faces, nevertheless they still ask why,
What gives you so much joy in all this mess? Why does your heart soar like the feathers from a pillow fight in the skies, coming down softly like cool waters to melt heavy heart why?!
” …. Its all because of this! Its all because of this! We’ve tasted LOVE and Tasted HOPE and Tasted HOLINESS ! …..”
Oh the joy there is in Christ! Oh the boundless spring of life, oh the promise in the storm, oh our hope! your bride say’s Come!
Oh the Rest and Hiding place, of all who flee to be veiled in thee, oh the Beauty on our Face oh the Guardian of our gates.
Oh the reason we are free, We take up our cross and follow thee, yoked to you now burdens light, no death to fear you conquered All! Through battle cries we rest in Hope for in Christ alone His peace we hold.
Ahhh, yes! There is a reason! For this everflowing peace.
Chuckling at the sky or grinning to ourselves. You died our death and Rose unto Life! Your gift of Love a joyous! Joyous ride.
