“And every voice a song”

Last year a few very gifted songwriters from our parish put new music to an old Advent song.  It’s become a favorite of mine.  The chorus goes: “Hark, the glad sound!  The Savior comes, the Savior promised long; let ev’ry heart prepare a throne, and every voice a song.”  I’ve been thinking a lot about that last phrase: “and every voice a song,” and asking myself: “What song am I preparing for the Savior’s coming?”  I would suggest that you ask yourself the same question.  Maybe it’s a simple, secret phrase that you sing silently in your heart: “I am Yours and You are mine.”  Or maybe it’s something you want to sing out loud with your whole heart: “I am Yours and You are mine.”  (Yes, I know I repeated myself.)  May the Holy Spirit open your ears to His still, small voice singing in your heart, that you may sing along with full voice–whether silently or full volume.
