We Sing to Him

Don’t sing primarily because you love singing, or keep quiet because you do not. Sing because you love who made you, and formed you, and enables you to sing:

We sing to Him whose wisdom form’d the ear, our songs , let Him who gave us voices, hear, we joy in God, who is The spring of mirth, who loves the harmony of Heav’n and earth: our humble sonnets shall that praise rehearse, who is the music of the Universe. And whilst we sing, we consecrate our art, and offer us with every tongue a heart.

Nathaniel Ingelo – 1688
