For the director of music. To the tune of “Lilies.” Of the Sons of Korah. A maskil. A wedding song.
1 My heart is stirred by a noble theme
as I recite my verses for the king;
my tongue is the pen of a skillful writer. Psalm 45:1
What does your “song” to the King sound like? A few days ago, I wrote about the instrument you’re playing for the Lord. But today it’s the actual song.
- Is it a lovely poem or something that’s edgy and chaotic?
- Is it short or is it long?
- Is it filled with laughter or sorrow?
- Is it joyful or painful?
What about your life? Does it give the Lord joy or pain when He sees it? Does He laugh or cry?
Pleasing the Lord and making Him smile is not difficult. If we do not make a special effort to bring joy to the Lord’s eyes, though, it probably will not happen on its own. As the hymn writer wrote: prone to wander, Lord I feel it; prone to leave the God I love.
