The Song of Our Hearts

About the Song

Thankful hearts often ask questions like this: “What shall I give him? Poor as I am?” (Christina Rossetti)

What do we have to offer to the Giver of all things? What can we give to the One who really does have everything?

The Lord himself offered this insight :

For my soul delighteth in the song of the heart; yea, the song of the righteous is a prayer unto me, and it shall be answered with a blessing upon their heads.

D&C 25:12

There is little we can offer the Lord that is not already His, but the songs of loving hearts, willingly offered, no matter how skilled or unskilled we may be, delight His very soul.

For the life in the seed that we nourish with care
For the warmth in the furrow the sower prepares
For the harvest that grows ‘neath thy sheltering wing
Dear Father, our Maker, our praises we sing

For the work of creation, the wonder of birth
Holy Father of fathers and mothers on earth
For our joy in the kinship thy wisdom ordains
Dear Father of spirits, we honor thy name

For the season of plenty thy providence sends
That we lay up in store ere the season must end
For the gift of thy Son to redeem us from death
Dear Father, we praise thee with each mortal breath

For the light in our days, and the hope that we hold
For the promise of heavenly riches untold
For the life everlasting thy goodness imparts
Dear Father, we offer the song of our hearts
