‘Sing Louder!’ (Gotta Try)

I’ve always thought it excellent advice: when life gets hard for a Christian, “Sing louder!” Reach out to God with hymns and psalms. All day long, on and off, if you have to. But I never had to put it to the test.

All right, let me try it. I’m mourning our cat, Peep. I’m watching my country, governed by idiots, thieves, and villains, be murdered by inches. Patty and I were sick and our affairs got disordered by it. My spirit ain’t right, just now–very far from it. I could just sit down and scream.

So let me try the hymns instead. I don’t have to sing them out loud. Start with this one, Christ Shall Have Dominion. Work my way around to Hyfrydol. It’s got to be better than gnashing my teeth.

I think I’ll sit outside and think, and silently sing hymns, and have my cigar. Before it rains.
