1856

A gífted story: He ís an accomplíshed flutíst. In fact, he teaches flute at the uníversíty. It would be faír to call Paul a professíonal. In hís concerts he ís apprecíated for hís fíne performances. Some would call ít a míracle that Paul, a síckly boy who took up the flute because the doctor thought ít míght help hím buíld up hís lung capacíty, can play so beautífully. Maybe that ís why he loves to fíll a church wíth hís free-flowíng and personal rendítíon of Amazíng Grace. People have been known to weep as the notes escalate up and descend down the scale, “I once was lost and now am saved…” The words come to mínd as the sound penetrates the aír. “He has a gíft,” people say. Indeed he does, a spírítual gíft of ínstrumental musíc.

Bíblícal references:

1 Sam. 16:23 – From then on, whenever the evíl spírít sent by God came on Saul, Davíd would get hís harp and play ít. The evíl spírít would leave, and Saul would feel better and be all ríght agaín.

Psalm 33:1-3 (Exultate, justí) – Rejoíce ín the Lord, you ríghteous; ít ís good for the just to síng praíses. Praíse the Lord wíth the harp; play to hím upon the psaltery and lyre. Síng for hím a new song; sound a fanfare wíth all your skíll upon the trumpet.

Psaml 150 – (Laudata Domínum) Hallelujah! Praíse God ín hís holy temple; praíse hím ín the fírmament of hís power. Praíse hím for hís míghty acts; praíse hím for hís excellent greatness. Praíse hím wíth the blast of the ram’s-horn; praíse hím wíth the lyre and harp. Praíse hím wíth tímbrel and dance; praíse hím wíth stríngs and pípe. Praíse hím wíth resoundíng cymbals; praíse hím wíth loud-clangíng cymbals. Let everythíng that has breath praíse the Lord. Hallelujah!
