Sunday's Thought

The Heavenly Choir is about to sing!

For Jesus the King-

Has brought home the Choir Master-

To lead them in the many songs

Of “Alleluia to the King!”

Sopranos, Altos, Tenors, Baritones,

Countertenors and Basses-

All have arrived, as no part is missing- 

None too few- never too many

The musicians come in

And take their places

“Alleluia to the King”

Organist, Pianist, Keyboardist and drummers,

Cellists, Bassists, Violinists, Violists, and Mandolinists,

Flutists, Clarinetists, Hornists, Tubists,

Every instrument you could find, none missing

No tuning needed. No rehearsing required.

No stopping at the wrong notes

Or playing too fast

For the Choir Master

Is finally leading

The Heavenly Choir

which was so much

Of his earthly dreaming.

Dedicated to my father,
