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.
