Five Minute Friday – Song

On Fridays I link to Lisa Jo Baker and take only 5 minute to write a post. Great for making me to sit and write with total freedom. Here goes:



I think it is wonderful that I know so many worship songs now. Over the past 10 years since I came to really know Jesus and attended a church with the new music I feel closer to knowing the Bible through music.

When I read a passage in the Bible – particularly a Psalm – I immediately say – oh I know that from this song. I have music notes throughout my Bible to tell me that I knew that Scripture through music.

As a child I learned the Lord’s Prayer through music (and rote). But I love singing it. And the Lord’s My Shepherd.

One of the first Bible verse I learned (except those as a child) was Trust in the Lord with All your Heart. It happened when I helped lead my first VBS (Vacation Bible School). I loved it. Then John 3:16 in song.

Music makes words come alive to me. I remember my sister and I talking – then all of a sudden one word would hit us and we would start to sing. We still do that when we are together.

Time’s up – But I do love music. And I learn from it, too.

Here are the words to Shout to the Lord: based on Psalm 92:4.

Shout to the Lord, all the earth, let us sing
Power and majesty, praise to the King;
Mountains bow down and the seas will roar
At the sound of Your name.
I sing for joy at the work of Your hands,
Forever I’ll love You, forever I’ll stand,
Nothing compares to the promise I have in You.

Here is Chris Tomlin singing Shout to the Lord.

What do you think of when you hear the word “SONG”?

Have a great weekend,



Linking in with Lisa-Jo Baker and Five Minute Fridays.

1. Write for 5 minutes flat for pure unedited love of the written word.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in {you can grab the button code in my blog footer}
3. Go leave some comment props for the five minute artist who linked up before you {and if you love us, consider turning off word verification for the day to make it easier for folks to say howdy}

It’s a great way to catch your breath at the end of a long week.



  1. I remember my first memorized verse. Learn to do well. Isaiah 1: 17. I also remember learning to sing John 3: 16 and other bible verses at VBS. I enjoyed your post. Don’t you just love minute Friday?

I love to connect with you.
