Spurgeon: Here I have to sigh and praise, but there I shall only sing and praise.


    I will praise the LORD as long as I live;
        I will sing praises to my God while I have my being.  —Psalm 146:2 ESV

Charles H. Spurgeon, in “The Treasury of David”

song notesWhile I live I’ll love; and while I breathe I’ll bless. It is but for a while, and I will not while that time away in idleness, but consecrate it to that same service which shall occupy eternity. As our life is the gift of God’s mercy, it should be used for his glory. I will sing praises unto my God while I have any being. When I am no longer in being on earth, I hope to have a higher being in heaven, and there I will not only praise, but sing praises. Here I have to sigh and praise, but there I shall only sing and praise.
