Tuesday In the Second Week of Easter

Text: Exodus 15:1-21

Prayer Pointers: For composers and musicians



Then Moses and the people of Israel sang this song to the Lord…

One of the unique things about our world is that our daily lives are saturated with music. The world of Moses would have been astounded at our ability to fill every possible space, every possible moment with song. However, music today serves a very different purpose: as a commercial effort, music is sold to us to fit our tastes, our moods, our needs. Music is a part of our lifestyle “brand;” it’s about us, and really about each of us individually.

The music of the people of God aims at something different. Certainly the songs of the Scriptures tell of the things common to human experience: love and hate, joy and sorrow. Yet the songs of Israel—and of the Church—are about God as much as about people. Their songs, like this one about an event beside the Red Sea, teach history, remind people about who they are, connect even persons living today with persons who witnessed God’s mighty acts long ago. The songs of faith are not just for a single point in history; they are for all time.

Alleluia!
