I Will Sing To The Lord

 

 

For many hours I have been thoughtful.

A friend of our family died last night.

Still with teenage children living at home, he was not an old man.

Trusting in God when he found out he had cancer, he continued to be an encouragement to others.

He was a dedicated musician, giving of his time and talent to help others to learn to play.

Our friend enjoyed hearing me play hymns on the piano.

Last Sunday, aware that his condition was getting worse, I offered to come to his home and play hymns on his family piano as he rested in the "in home" hospital bed.

When I finished, we had a time of prayer with family and visitors.

He said, "Please come back."

I had planned to go again tomorrow and play….

This man loved God and he loved to worship God through song.

Many young musicians are leading in worship themselves through the encouragment of his teaching.

I know he is with God now in Heaven.

Psalm 104:33 reads,

"I will sing to the Lord as long as I live;
    I will sing praise to my God while I have being."

Our friend gave praise to the LORD through music while he was alive on this earth.

I have no doubt that he is singing praise to Him now, seeing Him face to face, in the light of His glory.

There is a an old hymn that is a comfort to me—especially this verse:

And when from death I’m free, I’ll sing on, I’ll sing on;
And when from death I’m free, I’ll sing on.
And when from death I’m free, I’ll sing and joyful be;
And through eternity, I’ll sing on, I’ll sing on;
And through eternity, I’ll sing on.

Many will miss our dear friend and the love and fellowship that flowed from his words and actions.

He, however, will be there to welcome us when we one day join him, singing on through eternity.
