No. 101: Singing from the Heart

This is the hymn on the other side of the bobby pin marker. Of course, I have no way of knowing who put the pin there or why, but I wonder if one of these two songs had special meaning to a previous owner of the hymnal. Perhaps God will be kind enough to let me ask her or him when I reach Heaven.

Verse 1:
If you have a pleasant tho’t,
Sing it, sing it;
As the birds sing in their sport,
Sing it from the heart;
Does the Holy Spirit move,
For the children of His love–
Sing and point the home above,
Sing it from the heart.

Refrain:
Singing, singing from the heart,
Oh, the joy our songs impart!
Jesus, bless the tuneful art,
Singing from the heart.

Verse 2:
Ev’ry gracious deed of His,
Sing it, sing it;
Nothing sounds so well as this,
Sing it from the heart;
How the Lord walked on the wave,
Rescued Laz’rus from the grave,
Died our guilty souls to save,
Sing it from the heart.

Verse 3:
Are you weary, are you sad–
Sing it, sing it;
Make yourselves and others glad,
Sing it from the heart;
Blessed ones before His face,
Sing of Christ’s atoning grace,
Give the Savior endless praise,
Sing it from the heart.

R. Morris, L.L.D./H.R. Palmer
