Full of Song (Spurgeon’s Faith’s Checkbook)

From Charles Spurgeon’s “Faith’s Checkbook”
Full of Song
May 1
The mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. (Isaiah 55:12)

When sin is pardoned, our greatest sorrow is ended, and our truest pleasure begins. Such is the joy which the Lord bestows upon His reconciled ones, that it overflows and fills all nature with delight. The material world has latent music in it, and a renewed heart knows how to bring it out and make it vocal. Creation is the organ, and a gracious man finds out its keys, lays his hand thereon, and wakes the whole system of the universe to the harmony of praise. Mountains and hills, and other great objects, are, as it were, the bass of the chorus; while the trees of the wood, and all things that have life, take up the air of the melodious song.
When God’s Word is made to prosper among us and souls are saved, then everything seems full of song. When we hear the confessions of young believers and the testimonies of well-instructed saints, we are made so happy that we must praise the Lord, and then it seems as if rocks and hills and woods and fields echo our joy-notes and turn the world into an orchestra. Lord, on this happy May Day, lead me out into thy tuneful world as rich in praise as a lark in full song.

Bible Verse

Psa 47
Psalm 47

To the chief Musician, A Psalm for the sons of Korah.

1 O clap your hands, all ye people;

shout unto God with the voice of triumph.

2 For the Lord most high is terrible;

he is a great King over all the earth.

3 He shall subdue the people under us,

and the nations under our feet.

4 He shall choose our inheritance for us,

the excellency of Jacob whom he loved. Selah.

5 God is gone up with a shout,

the Lord with the sound of a trumpet.

6 Sing praises to God, sing praises:

sing praises unto our King, sing praises.

7 For God is the King of all the earth:

sing ye praises with understanding.

8 God reigneth over the heathen:

God sitteth upon the throne of his holiness.

9 The princes of the people are gathered together,

even the people of the God of Abraham: for the shields of the earth belong unto God: he is greatly exalted.
� KJV
