THEN SINGS MY SOUL by Robert J. Morgan


“Then Sings My Soul” by Robert J. Morgan presents the classic hymns of the faith in a magnificent two-thousand year repertoire of music in Christian hymnody that reverberates awesomely through the ages of time. By learning the splendid legacy of our past, we create a beautiful legacy for our future.

All creation sings God’s praise in a magnificent crescendo of sights and sounds.The Lord created us with an extraordinary capability for music and song. We are designed and destined to sing His glorious praises. “God lives in the praises of His people.” Our spirits respond to God’s truth in a musical form. Hymns are “distillations of the richest truths of God,” “bursts of devotional richness,””portable units of praise,” and “miniature Bible studies” that lead us to worship and praise God. Hymns have “an indestructible freshness and power.” A hymnbook is one of “the richest fountains of edification.”

Sifting through the overarching heritage of our hymnody, we come to the root core of praise. The history of our hymnody is a rich and varied study of inspiring legacies, selfless heroes and astounding stories. The history of the church is recorded in her soul-stirring hymns while the story of Christianity can be read in its inspiring songs. Just like the well-gleaned promises of the Bible, a unique hymn is available for each particular need of ours, covering every single circumstance we will ever face in life.

God loves music. He recorded a lot of it in the Bible. God loves it when His children sing His praises. Hymns and songs proclaim God’s truth. God blesses people in every age and clime with the amazing ability to compose songs and music to glorify His Name in all the earth. God the Holy Spirit sings through the voice of His church. “When we sing to the Lord, it is the Holy Spirit welling up and overflowing in our hearts!” God is praised and honored when we sing to Him! To God alone be all the glory!

  1. Good morning my dear Miriam – I have been praying that God would bring a writer to us who could share the history of some of our traditional hymns, so when I read this post I thought perhaps I might ask you if you would be interested in doing a feature article in each issue of Ruby for Women on the history of one hymn. Please think about this and let me know if this is something you would be interested in doing. I will feature this post on the Ruby blog today, and await your reply. I am also working on getting the Ruby promotional materials together this morning – it didn’t work out last week as I had anticipated! Hugs, Nina

    1. Dear Nina, I will be honored to write a feature article in each issue of Ruby For Women on the history of one hymn. This is what God has inspired me to do for years. Our Lord waited for you to come and start it off. Thank you for listening to God’s voice so clearly!
