Time are troubled and, still, there is peace to be found. When you are needing to be freed from fear or grief or trouble, “sing that song of peace.”
Heaven is our hope.
[Col 1:5 NKJV] . . . because of the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, of which you heard before in the word of the truth of the gospel. . . (http://blb.sc/003Gcw)
[Mat 6:19-21 NKJV] 19 “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; 20 “but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

Singing is something that we are told to do in the New Testament. Take a look at Ephesians 5:19 and Colossians 3:16. We also see examples of singing during troubled times. Paul and Silas sang when they were in prison. (Acts 16:25)
Let us imitate those that came before us and sing that song that can release us from fear and show us hope. Let us sing and focus our minds and our hearts on Christ and the difference we can make around us by showing Him to others.

Sing To Me Of Heaven
lyrics: Ada Powell (1914)
music: Benjamine B Beall (1914)
1 Sing to me of heaven, sing that song of peace,
From the toils that bind me it will bring release.
Burdens will be listed that are pressing so;
Showers of great blessing o’er my heart will flow.
Sing to me of heaven, let me fondly dream
Of its golden glory, of its pearly gleam.
Sing to me when shadows of the evening fall.
Sing to me of heaven, sweetest song of all.
2 Sing to me of heaven as I walk alone
Dreaming of the comrades that so long have gone.
In a fairer region, ‘mong the angel throng
They are happy as they sing that old sweet song.
3 Sing to me of heaven, tenderly and low,
Till the shadows o’er me rise and swiftly go.
When my heart is weary, when the day is long.
Sing to me of heaven, sing that old, sweet song.
