Have you ever reflected how many times you have lied to God through worship songs? I know I mean well, but I get so in the music... that I could say anything. This is especially bad when I am playing cello. Songs like Everlasting God and Indescribable are safe. They just describe attributes of God. Those are always true and right. But songs like Holiness... Is holiness what I long for? How about faithfulness? Righteousness? Overall in life, yes I believe it is, but at that moment... not always. One of my favorite worship songs is Draw Me Close. But there is a line "You're all I want". Sometimes that is so hard to sing. There are a lot of other things I want... not only God. Then in Blessed Be Your Name there is the line "you give and take away, still my heart will choose to say, Blessed be your name". How often do I not bless God when things are taken away.
I think these lines are great and wonderful. I think they need to be said... even sung, but I would like to sing and say them in earnest more often.
