The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in Him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise Him.
The LORD is their strength, and He is the saving strength of His anointed.
Save Thy people, and bless Thine inheritance: feed them also, and lift them up for ever.
It shouldn’t be surprising that the Psalms so often trigger music; nor that the music in my head is from a much earlier time in my life. This wonderful old praise song, written by Fanny J. Crosby, dates back to the 1860s. I don’t go back quite that far 🙂
The three verses I’ve chosen from Psalm 28 are really not in need of explanation. I think what attracted them to me this morning is the joy they portray. There is peace, strength, joy, safety, and help in the Lord. All of those things led David and many other songwriters to pen wonderful words of praise to the Lord.
