He also brought me out of a horrible pit…. He has put a new song in my mouth. Psalm 40:2-3
Rescuers in Neath, England, found a beautiful swan in a graveyard near a church. Inspector Nic de Celis said, “This poor young swan was a little disoriented after becoming trapped in a busy churchyard, surrounded by a high fence and many graves. Fortunately, the swan wasn’t injured, and I was able to safely return the bird to the nearby canal—where he joined a sibling.”
Millions of people are trapped by their fear of death, surrounded by fences they can’t climb, feeling disoriented. But the Lord Jesus comes to our rescue, frees us from the graveyard, and brings joy and happiness into our lives. There’s a happiness the world knows nothing about. It’s found in the open tomb of Jesus, the open arms of grace, and the open pages of Scripture. That’s something to sing about!
The psalmist said, “He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear the Lord and put their trust in him” (Psalm 40:3, NIV).
You may very well weary of the monotony of any human voice, but you can never be tired of the many-stringed harp which is to be found in that one name, the name of Jesus! Charles H. Spurgeon
