Bursting Out in Song

On the way home from the Walk-to-School, and after the Morning Pep Talk (in which I quoted JimDaddy Miller’s famous line, “You have everything to look forward to and nothing to dread), I began to sing. 

I hope nobody heard me, but I did seem to attract an unusual number of dogs. I sang the old Twila Paris chorus, “He is Exalted.”

He is exalted the King is exalted on High

I will praise You

He is exalted forever exalted

And I will praise His name

He is the Lord

Forever His truth shall reign

Heaven and Earth

Rejoice in His holy name

He is exalted the King is exalted on high! 

I think about this exalted King whose truth reigns forever. Here I am with dogs jumping all over me on this crisp Pennsylvania winter day–when some of my friends protest this day in history and others brim with hope–and yet, I’m attached to this beautiful, eternal moment.
