Go Tell It on the Mountain: Day 7

Today's Text: Isaiah 12:5

Memorizing Scripture is one of the best ways to carry God-breathed truth, instruction, and reproof wherever we go.

As we travel through these early American hymns together, let’s memorize this key verse about celebrating the Lord for His glorious works.

Sing to the Lord, for he has done glorious things.
Let this be known throughout the earth.
—Isaiah 12:5

Write this passage down and post it on your mirror or at your desk, in your car or on the fridge—anywhere you’ll see it often. Save the image below as your phone’s lock screen so you can read these words of truth throughout the day.

We want to be a community that is intentional about Scripture memorization. Will you join us?

  • I am so enjoying this hymn series. I used to sing hymns to my daughters when I put them to bed, because we sang more worship songs at church and I wanted them to be familiar with and hear these songs often. They are an important part of our Christian heritage. I have but one request. Would you consider making the font larger on the images for our lock screens for these more seasoned (wearing out) eyes?

  • Even though this week was rough. Even though I have felt like I have failed, there is one thing that is still consistent. God’s goodness and love. God is still good and will still be good. I praise Him and sing to Him because He has done glorious things in my life. Through the good and the bad, He is still good. #SheReadsTruth #GodMakinMoves

  • Great verse today. I just love this site. Ever since I joined I read my bible everyday

    This verse today reminds me to pray for all the missionaries who serve around the world. They go to places I can not go but in prayer. My niece serves Syrian refugees in Sweden and leads children’s crusades in India and Madagascar. Difficult cultures to penetrate with the Gospel and yet she so joyfully follows God’s calling. As I pray for her I also ask the Lord to give me a greater boldness right here in the USA – it too is becoming a difficult culture to penetrate with the Gospel. May we all press on, singing and speaking of the glorious things He has done, letting this be known throughout our little part of the earth.

    I’m singing His praises for the Hope we have in Jesus.
    Today, I said goodbye to my sister. She was not responding after her heart stopped twice Wednesday night. Yesterday we agreed that she’d didn’t want to hooked up to be alive so we put her comfort care and within 2 hours she left our world. My hope is for a better place. Grateful. But now I can hardly grasp its true. Awake but the Lord is here.

      I’m so sorry to hear that, Karen. Praying for you and your family. Grateful you honored her wishes and let her walk in to our Savior’s loving arms. From your arms to His. He holds you too.

      Karen, I’m so sad to hear of your loss. I can only imagine how painful this time must be for you and your family. My condolences. I pray that you might sense God’s nearness in a very real and tangible way today.

    • Kathy

      I am so sorry for your loss, but so glad to know that your sister is with Jesus right now. I pray that God will bring you peace and comfort and wonderful memories.

      Karen, my heart is hurting with you. There are so many things that happen that just don’t make sense. I am praying that the Lord would overwhelm you with His peace, that it would cover you from head to toe and wrap you up like a snuggly comforter, that you would be filled with hope as you grieve and begin the healing process, and that the Holy Spirit would fill your mouth with laughter and praise so that in any circumstance you can continue to sing to the Lord for He has done glorious things.

      “But we do not want you to be uninformed, brothers, about those who are asleep, that you may not grieve as others do who have no hope.” 1 Thessalonians 4:13
