The Musician’s Prayer

To God, who created every song, note, and key
All glory and praise, I offer to Thee
Before the clap of the hand, or the tap of the shoe
The concept of rhythm, it started with You
You composed melodies for the birds to sing
And anointed their songs with the joy that they bring
So before You, the author of music, I bow
I’m asking that You would bless me now
With the understanding of this perfect gift
This ministry You have blessed me with
That Your glory will always be my goal
That You will be the musician within my soul
Whether it be with my voice, my hands, or my feet
With wind, strings, pipes, or a steady beat
Without Your Spirit to touch and anoint
The sweetest sounds become mere noise
But to play like David, to calm and to soothe
And most of all, to be pleasing to you
Let this be my motive and the source of my drive
That Your name will ever be glorified
Please let my praise be a sacrifice
Offered to You, no pretense or disguise
Let my life be a song more precious than words
Sweeter to you than any note ever heard
Let it ring out strong, and true to the end
I ask in Jesus’ name, Amen.
