Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

When sadness comes to you and threatens to gain the upper hand, then say: Come, I must play our Lord a song on the organ (be it the Te Deum Laudamus or the Benedictus); for Scripture teaches me that he loves to hear joyful song and stringed instruments. And strike the keys with a will and sing out until the thoughts disappear as David and Elisha did.—Martin Luther, WA Br. 7, 105
