The theme of this morning’s scripture was “desires” which reminded me of a hymn our ward choir sang years ago – “Hear Thou the Song of my Heart.” Even when we can’t articulate our own thoughts, God can understand. Isn’t that a marvelous blessing? Unfortunately, this song isn’t in audio format (so you’ll need to be able to read/play music to “hear” it) but there are a lot of Sally DeFord’s songs that are. I could spend a LOT of time surfing her site, so it’s a good thing I forget about it for weeks at a time!

Hear thou the song of my heart
Hear thou the song of my heart
When as a burden there lies in my breast
An anthem of praise no words can express
Hear thou the song of my heart

Hear thou the song of my heart
When tears hush my voice as I fervently seek
To offer thee praise my soul cannot speak
Hear thou the song of my heart

Hear thou my joy unspoken
Hear thou my psalm unsung
Accept thou my quiet devotion
Professed in no earthly tongue
Hear ‘neath my stillness unbroken
A carol to my King
And when my heart can find no voice
Hear thou the songs I cannot sing

Hear thou the song of my heart
Though voiceless the anthem must often remain
Hear thou my love in the silent refrain
Hear thou the song of my heart
