When All of God’s Singers Get Home – hymn

When All of God's Singers Get Home

What an encouragement it is to sing together with brothers and sister who believe God and take Him at his word. Singing together seems to bind us together in a way that few other things do. Singing brings us together with sweetness, sorrow, happiness, lonliness, and every other emotion imaginable. There are plenty of times when speaking words cannot express something but singing it is possible and expresses the emotions felt perfectly.

Singing is something that impacts the desire of new brothers and sisters to attend and also impacts the joyful attendance of more mature brothers and sisters. One brother recently expressed it something like this – While I love the little congregation where I have been worshiping weekly, it is a joy to come home to this congregation and hear the joyful voices singing out and praising God together.

I agree. There is just something about praising God in song together, unhindered by instruments. Pure voices, pure love, pure joy. And I can’t wait to hear the singing in heaven “when all of God’s singers get home.”

At Home.

 

When All of God’s Singers Get Home

words: Luther G. Presley & Virgil O. Stamps (1937)
music: Virgil O. Stamps (1937)
What a song of delight in that City so bright
Will be wafted ‘neath Heaven’s fair dome!
How the ransomed will raise happy songs in His praise,
When all of God’s singers get home!

CHORUS:
When all of God’s singers get home,
Where never a sorrow will come;
There’ll be “no place like home,”
When all of God’s singers get home.

As We sing here on earth, songs of sadness or mirth,
‘Tis a foretaste of rapture to come.
But our joy can’t compare with the glory up there,
When all of God’s singers get home! Chorus

Having overcome sin, “Hallelujah, AMEN!”
Will be heard in that land o’er the foam;
Every heart will be light and each face will be bright–
When all of God’s singers get home! Chorus

    you are making me wonder…you don’t have an organ or piano in your church? This is so true though eh? “But our joy can’t compare with the glory up there,” as joyful as good congregational singing can make us, it doesn’t compare to what awaits.

      You are correct. The pattern shown in the Bible does not include instruments in worship. We follow the example of the New Testament and those who walked with Christ.
