Psalm 96:10-13: “Say among the nations, “The LORD reigns.” The world is firmly established, it cannot be moved; he will judge the peoples with equity. Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad; let the sea resound, and all that is in it; let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them. Then all the trees of the forest will sing for joy; they will sing before the LORD, for he comes, he comes to judge the earth. He will judge the world in righteousness and the peoples in his truth.”

Songs of Joyful Trees- Close

“Songs of Joyful Trees” is part of the “Songs of …” series, where every colorway is named from a verse found in Psalms.

Many of the Psalms have been turned into modern-day praise songs and choruses. This verse is actually found in two songs that I can think of. We love to sing praise choruses in our home. Mainly because my 3 year old daughter loves to sing. We decided early on that we wanted her singing music that would help her to grow as a person. It is so sweet to hear her in her room singing about the Lord.

She enjoys the music so much, as do we. It lifts my spirits to sing out to the Lord. We constantly have praise music on in our home, for our sake as much as the children’s’. The Lord is righteous and there will come a time when He will judge the whole earth. And at that time, the Bible says, the “Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad; let the sea resound, and all that is in it; let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them. Then all the trees of the forest will sing for joy.” The earth will sing of His glory as it does now.

I just look around and see how each day, nature points to a Creator. Our Lord lovingly formed the earth and each and every creature on it. He is good and the trees know it and sing about it. Therefore, “Songs of Joyful Trees” was named in honor of the trees and their joy for God. Dyed in many shades of green and a bit of yellow, “Songs of Joyful Trees” is here to remind me that nature knows that God is coming to judge us. Do we understand that too?
