THOUGHTS ON PRAYER




SINGING HEART

 

"Sing unto Him a new song." Put off old songs and sing skillfully; sing with jubilation; for this is to sing skillfully unto God. But what is it to sing with jubilation? To be unable to express in words what is sung in the heart; for singers, either in the harvest or in the vineyard, or in any other busy work, after they have begun in their hymns to rejoice and exult, being filled with so great joy that they cannot express it in words, then proceed from actual words to sounds of jubilation; the heart laboureth with that which the tongue cannot utter. And whom beseemeth that jubilation, that the heart may rejoice without words, and the boundless extent of joy may have no limits of syllables? Sing skillfully unto God with jubilation.

 

St. Augustine
