For today....

It is no secret here. I LOVE music...and I particularly love GOOD music. I was born and raised on the "two types" of music in the South: COUNTRY and And through the grace and mercy of God, I was able to branch both "out" and "away" from that particular genre.

I love good CHURCH music.....not just the "ditties" that so many in the post-modern contemporary religious culture call "music."

One of my favorite hymns is by the famed Isaac Watts...a legend in his own right.

Here it is:

I sing the mighty power of God
that made the mountains rise!
That spread the flowing seas abroad,
and built the lofty skies.
I sing the wisdom that ordained
the sun to rule the day.
The moon shines full at God’s command,
and all the stars obey.

I sing the goodness of the Lord,
who filled the earth with food!
Who formed the creatures by His Word,
and then pronounced them good.
Lord, how Thy wonders are displayed,
where’er I turn my eyes.
If I survey the ground I tread,
or gaze upon the sky.

There’s not a plant or flower below,
but makes Thy glories known!
And clouds arise, and tempests blow,
by order from Thy throne!
While all that borrows life from Thee
is ever in Thy care.
And everywhere that we can be,
Thou, God art present there.

So, go ahead and "sing His mighty power" today.

I dare you!
