Lord, I was suffering. I was no longer singing.
There was no hymn in my heart. There were no lyrics on my lips.
I was mad because I was mistreated. Those mean people made off with the music of my life.
But now, Lord, your counsel brings comfort. Your word brings hope.
Because of you, I am no longer suffering. I am once again singing.
Your word has put the beat back in my heart and the soul back in my song.
I’m tapping my toes and humming a hymn.
Your word has become the music of my life.
