“I waited patiently for the Lord; he turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. 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.”
Psalms 40:1-3 NIV
These verses remind me of my mom. She used to sing a lot at home. One of her favorite hymns was “He Brought Me Out” by Henry J. Zelley. The refrain goes like this:
He brought me out of the miry clay,
He set my feet on the Rock to stay;
He puts a song in my soul today,
A song of praise, hallelujah!
Thank you for lifting me out of the slimy pit of sin and setting me on the solid rock,
The solid foundation.
Thank you for putting a song in my soul,
A song of Praise,
