in the Night
35:10 But none saith,
Where is God my maker,
who giveth songs in
make our songs in the day of our gladness,
When life is all laughter and joy
When never a shadow has clouded our sunshine;
But God giveth
songs in the night!
giveth songs in the night of our sorrow,
When tears are our drink and when
grief is our meat,
Till we silence our weeping and still our repining
list to those cadences sweet.
giveth songs in the night of affliction,
When earth has no sun and the heavens
Like a comforting touch in the desolate darkness
His voice stealeth
in from afar.
giveth songs -- and His music is sweeter
Than earth's greatest voices and gladdest
Our loveliest melodies shade to the minor,
But His keep their
full major strains.
giveth songs when our music is over,
When our voices falter and our tongues
When trembling hands drop from the lute and the harp-strings,
hushed are the viol and flute.
us Thy songs, O Thou Maker of music!
Teach us to sing, O Thou Bringer of joy!
nothing can silence the notes of our triumph
And naught our rejoicing destroy!
32:7 Thou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou
shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance. Selah.
