“Thump, thump,” goes the heart.
“Pat, pat, pat,” move the feet.
“Do, re, mi,” sings the voice.
But what should be of your soul?
“Swish, swoosh,” blows the wind.
“Crash,” and then “Shhhhh,” speak the waves.
“Chirp, chirp, chirp,” sing the birds.
But what should be of your spirit?
“Vroom, vroom,” roars the engine.
“Tick, tock,” clicks the clock.
“Beep, beep, beep,” sounds the alarm.
But what should be of your song?
The empty soul is hollow,
The distant spirit is silent,
The sound within is frightening,
For those who do not know…
The satisfied soul is joyful!
It sings at the top of its lungs,
It leaps and bounds, rejoicing,
The God-filled soul is alive!
The active spirit is a marvel!
It whispers in wisdom and peace,
It speaks in Psalms and hymns,
The lively spirit is a revelation!
The song from within is thunderous!
It sings and sings, never ceasing,
It’s joyous and sunny and wonderful,
The inner song is one of victory!
Each soul may choose its content.
Each spirit may invite its sound.
Each song is chosen by its singer.
Each life is lived by its given body.
So, the soul is yours to fill.
The spirit is there for inviting.
The song is yours to sing.
And your job is to sound them all.
The Soul of God is everlasting!
The Spirit of God is eternal!
The Song of God is never-ending!
All you have to do is let him in.
The purpose of the soul is to glorify.
The purpose of the spirit is to guide.
The purpose of the song is to rejoice.
And the purpose of sound is to share.
So let your soul be loud in love!
Let your spirit be heard in wisdom!
Let your song be one of praise!
And let your life be one worth sharing!
