The vision for using music to touch lives was the raison d’être for the birth of “raphsongmusic”. Although much has been written on a variety of other topics, the original vision still holds true. Every now and again, the music motif is given fresh life.
A recent, fresh reading of the last two psalms (songs) in the book of Psalms provided the inspiration for re-energizing an old song. The writers encourage us to engage in exuberant, enthusiastic praise: to the rhythm of the tambourines; to the crash of the cymbals; to the sound of the trumpets; with voices raised on high. Everything that has breath – indeed all of creation- is encouraged to praise the Lord.
As I read I could feel a new song rising in my spirit, waiting to be given voice. The words remind me of an earlier song written several years ago based on the final psalm, titled: “Praise the Lord”.
I have included a clip in which the old and new have been merged. It still has the title: “Praise the Lord”.
I hope you enjoy the song and find encouragement in it.
