Have you ever thought that sometimes we lie when we sing hymns? Today’s devotional gives and example and the cure. God bless you.
Because of Calvary,
My son, give me your heart,
and let your eyes observe my ways.
“Do not sing that hymn, —
‘Had I ten thousand tongues, they all
Should join the harmony.’
Do not wish for so many tongues. Do not say, —
‘Had I ten thousand heart, dear Lord,
I’d give them all to thee.’
Try and give him the one you have…”
[Charles Haddon Spurgeon, The Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit XLV, (London: Passmore and Alabaster, 1899), p. 379]
