O Rest in the Lord – by Mendelssohn

Scripture put to music that supports and lifts the text is as beautiful as it gets, because it is truth. Here is one aria from Elijah that has meant a lot to me through the years. It is taken from Psalm 37.

Trust in the Lord, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass. And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday. Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass. ~ Psalm 37:3-7

    Increasingly, God uses the Psalms to bring comfort and assurance in my life. My hope is in the LORD. Thanks for the post. Maranatha.
