Music Ministry Moment
A hymn that I like to sing or play at the beginning of service is “Come, Christians, Join to Sing” (UMH 158). Its music is joyful and heralding, which supports the lyrics of praise as we glorify God. The imagery I get whenever I hear this hymn is a row of angels flanking both sides of the road that leads us to heaven with their instruments playing and voices singing as we pass through the gates.
I only remember a few occasions of singing this hymn growing up, but each time I get that same imagery. We’re just marching to see Jesus sitting on his throne with angels flanking us on all sides singing and playing for his glory. When I learned as a kid that the streets of heaven are made of gold and that there are mansions everywhere, I was excited. I’m still excited that there is a place so pure and spotless that we get to go to after we pass on here from earth. From that excitement, I’ll be bringing loud praise.
My hope is that this hymn reminds you that we can all bring that same loud praise to God as well. My constant prayer is that you and your family stay healthy and safe through this pandemic.
With the Spirit of Praise,
