Open my heart, soul and voice to sing your praises, Lord. Let me raise a joyful noise to please your hearing. Help me to hear the song you sing over me. Allow the lyrics and melody to bolster my faith and increase my love for you that translates into love for those around me. Keep me grounded in your Scripture that nourishes my soul. I lift my song in your precious name and powerful authority, according to the good and perfect will of the Father. Amen.

“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God.” (Colossians 3:16 ESV)
