Pulling Out Stored Treasures


I have had this little chorus that has been playing over and over in my head the last couple of weeks. Another one of those songs we sang in church years ago based on scripture.

                       My soul escaped like a bird out of the snare of the fowler
                       My soul escaped like a bird out of the snare of the fowler

                       The snare is broken and we are escaped our help is in the name of the Lord
                       The snare is broken and we are escaped our help is in the name of the Lord

A simple little song, we sang a lot of scripture in that church. There is some value in singing scripture,  case in point....I remember it, it's like treasure buried deep in my heart.This is a scripture I needed to be reminded of, another one of God's truths

We have escaped like a bird out of the fowler's snare; the snare has been broken, and we have escaped. Our help is in the name of the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth   Psalm 124:7-8
