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."
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.
