Proverbs 15:4 (NLT), Exodus 15:2 (NASB), John 6:63b (NASB), arranged antiphonally
Gentle words are a tree of life;
The Lord is my strength and song
Sing, Mississippi Delta! Sing gentle words of life. Sing of God’s strength. Sing!
A deceitful tongue crushes the spirit.
[The Lord] has become my salvation;
Sing, Mississippi Delta! Proclaim God’s truth in music and overthrow the lies. Sing!
“…The words that I have spoken to you are spirit and are life.”
This is my God, and I will praise Him;
My father’s God, and I will extol Him.
Sing, Mississippi Delta! Sing the words of Jesus. Glorify our God in song!
