Streams in the Desert

Devotional For

June 19



      Rejoice
      
      "Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice" (Phil. 4:4).
      
      "Sing a little song of trust,
      O my heart!
      Sing it just because you must,
      As leaves start;
      As flowers push their way through dust;
      Sing, my heart, because you must.
      
      "Wait not for an eager throng
      Bird on bird;
      'Tis the solitary song
      That is heard.
      Every voice at dawn will start,
      Be a nightingale, my heart!
      
      "Sing across the winter snow,
      Pierce the cloud;
      Sing when mists are drooping low
      Clear and loud;
      But sing sweetest in the dark;
      He who slumbers not will hark."
      
      "An' when He hears yo' sing, He bends down wid a smile on His kin' face an' listens mighty keerful, an' He says, 'Sing on, chile, I hears, an' I's comin' down to deliber yo': I'll tote dat load fer yo'; jest lean hawd on Me and de road will get smoother bime by."'
