Songs In The Night

Where is God my maker,
Who giveth songs in the night?
Job 35:10

It is easy to sing when we can read the notes by daylight; but he is skillful who sings when there is not a ray of light to read by, who sings from his heart. No man can make a song in the night of himself; he may attempt it, but he will find that a song in the night must be divinely inspired. Let all things go well, I can weave songs, fashioning them wherever I go out of the flowers that grow on my path; but put me in a desert, where no green thing grows, and wherewith shall I frame a hymn of praise to God?

No, it is not in man's power to sing when all is adverse. . . Since our Maker gives songs in the night, let us wait on him for the music. . . Let us not remain songless because affliction is upon us, but tune our lips to the melody of thanksgiving. Charles H. Spurgeon


  1. Oh, Adrienne, that is such a beautiful post. Songs in the Night..I love that! The Lord has actually put a song in my heart right in the middle of some very trying times...not through my own ability but His! How comforting that is!

    Thanks for sharing Spurgeon.

  4. I love that post, Adrienne. I have written a lot of songs in the night, by His power. Actually, I really did write one in the night. "Whisper His Name." Whisper the name of Jesus. He hears your every plea. His ears are always open. He knows your every need ~ Whisper His name, that beautiful name, call on the name of Jesus. His is the name above all names, stong mighty name of Jesus. © Cathy L. Simpson

  5. That is such a beautiful quote.One that makes us realize that we can sing songs of praise through adversity only through our Maker...
    I love Charles Spurgeon
