Too great for mere speaking...let's sing

I found this quote on mydaughter’s Facebook.

 

"The reality of God and Christ and Creation and Salvation and Heaven and Hell are too great for mere speaking they must be sung."
~John Piper

 

For me there is a little job security in that statement. There is nothing that says we should only sing of the things mentioned above; however there is something that adds emotion and beauty to words when you add melody, harmony, rhythm and dynamics.

 

Another quote from a religious leader from years ago is: 

 

So I will keep doing what I am doing and in so doing encouraging others to do the same…singing about God, Christ, Creation, Salvation, the promise of heaven and the reality of hell.
