The Lord Sings Over You! Piper

 The LORD your God in your midst, 
      The Mighty One, will save; 
      He will rejoice over you with gladness, 
      He will quiet you with His love, 
      He will rejoice over you with singing. 

                          Zephaniah 3:17

"I say this is almost too good to believe-that when the Father calls the minstrels to sing at the banquet, it is He Himself that leads the singing, and the song has to do with how glad He is that we are there. In fact it is too good for some people to believe, and they, tragically, cannot believe it. But Zephaniah labors under the wonderful inspiration of God to overcome every obstacle that would keep a person from believing-really feeling and enjoying-the unspeakable news that God rejoices over us with singing." John Piper
