Joyful Music

Oh, sing to the Lord a new song!
Sing to the Lord, all the earth.
Sing to the Lord, bless His name;
Proclaim the good news of His salvation from day to day.
Declare His glory among the nations,
His wonders among all peoples.

For the Lord is great and greatly to be praised;
He is to be feared above all gods.
For all the gods of the peoples are idols,
But the Lord made the heavens.
Honor and majesty are before Him;
Strength and beauty are in His sanctuary.

Psalm 96:1-6

The Sun is Always Shining

Below is the scan (I wish the colors were as vivid in the scan as they are in real life) of envelope art before it gets addressed and stamped. See below for all the words to this song. I hope you are encouraged by the truth of the lyrics.

Clouds 4.jpg

Never fear tho’ shadows dark around your path may fall;
Do not let your heart be troubled;
From His throne in heaven,
God is watching one and all,
He will ever care for you.

Refrain:

Back of the clouds the sun is always shining,
After the storms your skies will all be blue;
God has prepared a rosy-tinted lining,
Back of the clouds it’s waiting to shine thru.

Winter long is over and the spring has gone her way,
Often have the storm-clouds gathered,
But the rain has only made the blossoms look more gay
Given earth a brighter hue.

Keep the light of hope eternal dwelling in your heart,
Rest upon the Father’s promise,
And you’ll find that care and trouble quickly will depart,
Heaven’s peace will enter in.
