My Heart Rejoices (First Samuel 2), by DianaDee Osborne

ALBUM:      Amazing Word 'n' Worship
Song location

Song Story:  THE  MUSIC
       I'd already finished practicing before choir members arrived, so I just started playing "anything" at the piano.  This entire piece was written in minutes into my journal.... 

      THE  LYRICS:  This plus “YOURS O MY LORD”  was written during the first week that God gave me the idea for taking His actual Word and molding it into music (before I had any concept of what God would develop through DiDoReflections).  So these two songs became the first in a NEW ALBUM... and I surely never expected God to honor me with enough songs to more than fill all these albums!
       I'd always loved the  history of Hannah receiving a gift from God at a time when women were usually  considered inferior. It shows us a wonderful view into God's compassionate heart.    Even when we see how insignificant we seem to be in this world,  nevertheless we are of great importance to the Creator of the Universe, Who answers prayers... LET OUR HEARTS REJOICE! 

Dedicated to our Worthy God, 8 September 2009 

LYRICS ... 1 Samuel 2 :  1-4
“My heart rejoices in the LORD!
My heart is exalted in the LORD!
I smile at my enemies because I rejoice in
Your salvation.
No one is holy like the  LORD.
For there is none beside You,  God.

Nor is there any Rock like Our God.
Talk no more so very proudly.
Say no arrogance with your mouth,
For the LORD is the God of knowledge,
and by our God, actions are weighed,
and those who stumble are girded with strength.”
First Samuel 2,  verse 1 through 4.
This was Hannah's worship song.
This shall be my praise all day long!

REFERENCES:  ARROGANCE ( 1 Samuel 2: 3 )
