Jesus sang


Jesus sang.

He really did.

Over the holidays, a group of friends were talking about all the impressive details that had to come together to create the birth of Jesus: The stars in the sky, the singing angels, no rooms in the inn and eventually traveling wise-men and a mad, local king.

The conversation drifted from the profound alignment of the solar system, to the nitty-gritty practical.

How did they clean that first newborn diaper in a manger with no running water? Hay?

Then my brother, Erik, talked about one, little, tiny reference of scripture that captivated him. And now, I can’t get it out of my mind. I’m not sure I want to.

It’s in the book of Mark right after Jesus served communion:

And when they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives. Mark 14:26

Jesus sang.

He sang a hymn.

Can you imagine what that sounded like? Would the Son of God have perfect pitch?


Thinking about Jesus singing praise to His Father makes me want to emulate Him.

Someday…someday, I’ll stand next to Jesus and I’ll hear Jesus sing.

Blessings on you as you enter a fresh, clean, shiny New Year. May it be filled with moments of wonder and worship as breathtaking as imagining Jesus singing.

Merry Christmas and Happy 2016.

  1. Very likely this song was some portion of Psalm 114–118, and very likely it was sung antiphonally, meaning Jesus led the men by singing a line, and the disciples responded by singing a “Hallelujah.” Back and forth they responsively marched through a psalm in song.

  2. Hey Cara… You are a really great story-teller!!! I just saw your legacy scope and was now lead to your blog. How amazing that your mom was on that very special scope… and your sweet girl too!

    Thinking about Jesus singing is AMAZING!!! I am a singer too and I have always said that there is nothing better than singing for the Lord! But who thinks of Jesus singing?! You know what also has blown my mind lately? You’ll love this as you have a writer’s heart too. God is the ultimate Author… and He spoke the world into existence. Everything in the bible is God-breathed. I have been hearing him knock on my door louder and louder. There is so much inside of me that He has infused and refined. There are many stories and experiences that He is calling me to share. It is His will for me to serve others by opening up the doors of my heart and mind.

    It sounds like He is calling you to do the same! And if our Abba Father is calling us to do it, our Heavenly Daddy, then we know that love and mercy shall follow us as we take each brave baby step!

    • Eva, You are such a dear heart. When I started all this social media stuff, my intention was to encourage. It’s amazing how much encouragement I have reaped in the process of being obedient. Like I’ve said to you before. I can’t wait to witness your journey.
