My wife, Kathleen, is singing this song with me here.
No song is unworthy to be sung to the Lord
If God lives within you, making your life sing for Him.
Sing for Him, sing for Him, sing for Him.
No tune is less than beautiful to be sung to the Lord
If your life’s in tune with what God wants your life to be.
Wants you to be, wants you to be, wants you to be.
No rhythm is unsteady to be sung to the Lord
If your life’s in rhythm with God’s heartbeat of love.
Heartbeat of love, heartbeat of love, heartbeat of love.
No words are less than poetry to be sung to the Lord
If your life sings of the Word who is making your life sing.
Making you sing, making you sing, making you sing for Him.
About this Song:
A number of years ago, I was feeling rather down about my singing and songwriting, and I wrote this song to convince myself that what I was doing was important to God, even if it didn’t matter to anyone else.
I wrote a harmony part for it and have done duets with various people on mission trips overseas (everywhere from Wales to Australia) as well as locally with my wife. I’ve also enjoyed doing private duets with such (more professional) singers as Janet Roller, Angela Hunt, and Jane Jenkins Herlong. Incidentally, Jane was so gracious she emailed me to thank me for letting her sing it with me.
Note the logical progression of the lyrics. It goes from “song”–the song as a whole–to the various components: tune, rhythm, and words. I always consider words to be the most important part of a song. Because of that, perhaps the fact that I have a blog like this shouldn’t surprise you.
You can find a free lead sheet of this song in the drop down box found on the Lead Sheets tab at the top of this page.
