Therefore let all the faithful pray to you
while you may be found;
surely the rising of the mighty waters
will not reach them.
You are my hiding place;
you will protect me from trouble
and surround me with songs of deliverance. Psalm 32:6-7
What do they sound like, these songs of deliverance? Are they loud? Are they full of intricate harmonies?
We can speculate all day long about how those songs of deliverance really sound.
The story is told of a concert pianist who was set to take the stage when a youngster got loose from his parents and sat down at the piano bench on stage. He played the only song he knew: chopsticks. The audience started to yell at the boy and call for his removal. The concert pianist waiting in the wings heard the commotion, came onto the stage, and got behind the boy. While adding to the boy’s sound with an elaborate enhancement to chopsticks, the concert pianist whispered, “Keep playing, lad, you’re doing great. Keep playing. Don’t worry about what they’re saying. Keep playing.”
What do the songs of deliverance sound like? It could be Twinkle Twinkle Little Star for all we know, but if it’s being played by the Master himself, it’s more than enough for the situation.
