How do we sing when our hearts ache, when madness seems to reign?
How do we sing in the face of tragedy and horrific violence?
How do we sing when young children are slaughtered?
How do we sing when a human being gets so lost?
How do we sing when things are incomprehensible, when we are so confused and sad and angry?
Sing and let tears fall.
Sing for all the loss.
Sing and mourn.
Sing for the families.
Sing for the school and the community.
Sing for love to be stronger than death.
Sing for the pain and the preciousness of life.
Sing for the weary world, for its woes and suffering.
Sing to hear the angels sing peace and good will.
Sing for comfort.
Sing for courage.
Sing and strengthen your voice to demand gun control and regulation.
Sing for every child,
for every parent,
for every teacher.
Sing for families.
Sing for survivors.
Sing to quiet fears.
Sing to restore the soul.
Sing, for music heals.

Sing for life.
Sing for all that makes our days good.
Sing to rekindle light and hope.
Sing for the reassuring touch of hands.
Sing for loving memories of grandparents and parents, aunts, uncles, and cousins.
Sing for rivers of love that can’t be held in place but are flowing together,
making you feel endless, connection; you to all, you to everything.
Sing. Music brings us together.
Sing to encourage one another’s strengths.

Sing for each life.
Sing for the whole human family.
Sing for creation.
Sing for the wonderful and even the difficult challenges in relationships,
the constant, continual opportunities to keep growing.
Sing in Sunday Services.
Where else do you join your voice with others in song?
Sing for risking and reaching out to make connection.
No telling what might happen if you walk across this room
to meet someone new to you, to introduce yourself.
Sing heedless of the wind and weather.
Sing prayers. Sing praise. Sing gratitude.
Sing humor and truth.
Sing we joyous all together.
Sing for joy, laughter and playfulness.
Sing Deck the Halls with Buddy Holly.
Sing We Three Kings of Porridge and Tar.
Sometimes even when we don’t get the lyrics, our spirits sing.
Oh, What fun it is to ride with one horse, soap and hay.
And with the jelly toast proclaim
Olive, the other reindeer… You’ll go down in Listerine.
Sing to keep joy in the world.
Sing to lift your spirits.
Sing, Sing, Sing!
Sing for goodness’ sake.
Sing and bring our gifts in service to the world.
Sing for our power to partner with others in the larger community as a mighty force for justice and action.
Sing for making loving community and living that love in the world.
[music begins, a medley of beloved hymns]
Sing for the power of music to touch the soul.
Sing for wholeness and holiness.
Sing. Music comforts fears and loneliness and loss.
Sing, for with music, it gets better.
Music reminds us of what we hold dear.
Music soothes our weariness, our troubles.
Music takes us where words cannot.
[Music continues without any words]
Sing for peace on earth, good will to all. [Music continues.] Amen.
