JoEmma Urena, United States “Singing makes me feel close and connected with everything. There is great joy and gladness in song, and part of me believes that’s because song brings us closer as a human family. I hope that the Creator is pleased by songs of praise.”
Sing. Songs that praise the goodness of creation can help you connect with the joy of the creator. Sing a song about creation from your parish hymnal or family tradition.
Singing to the creator is tied to the very roots of our faith. In the psalms, we find this beautiful song:
The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
Day after day they pour forth speech;
night after night they reveal knowledge.
They have no speech, they use no words;
no sound is heard from them.
Yet their voice goes out into all the earth,
their words to the ends of the world.
In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun.
It is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber,
like a champion rejoicing to run his course.
It rises at one end of the heavens
and makes its circuit to the other;
nothing is deprived of its warmth.
Sing along with hymns that connect you with the creator. One good option is the St. Francis Prayer.
