Musicians of Mercy

"Elisha said… Bring me a minstrel.  And it came to pass, when the minstrel played, that the hand of the LORD came upon him… And he said, Thus saith the LORD… that valley shall be filled with water, that ye may drink" (2 Kings 3:14-17).  "Glorious things are spoken of thee, O city of God… As well the singers as the players on instruments shall be there: all my springs are in thee" (Psalm 87:3,7).  "I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave Himself for me" (Galatians 2:20). 

A drought brought armies to the brink
Of death, until a minstrel played
Who prophesied that they would drink
By God's provision that He made. 

There is no music now so sweet
That satisfies our thirsty soul
Than hymns that show we are complete
In Christ who ransomed us in full. 

In heaven there are glorious things
That shall inspire jubilation!  
Musicians play, the ransomed sings,
And joy springs forth from our salvation.

Musicians of Your mercy, Lord,
Proclaim the wonders of Your love
Because Your life has been outpoured
That we might live with You above.
