When the Whole World Sings
welcome to today's encouragement from our daily bread devotional for today title when the whole world sings was written by Mark tahan
 a commercial jingle of the nineteen seventies inspired a generation created as part of Coca-Cola's the real thing ad campaign a British group called the new Seekers eventually saying it as a full-length song that climb to the top of the music charts around the world but many will never forget the original television version sung by young people on a Hilltop outside of Rome when's the cool asset wise with visions of honey bees and fruit trees we resonated with a songwriters desire to Teach the World to Sing with the heart and Harmony Health law of the Apostle John describe something like that idealize dream only vastly greater in Revelation 5 he envisioned a song sung by every creature in heaven and on Earth and under the Earth and on the sea and all that is in them there's nothing Whimsical about this Anthem nothing could be more realistic than the price
 we buy the one to whom this song is song neither could there be anything more foreboding than the visions of war death and consequence that his sacrifice of Love would have to overcome yet this is what it took for the Lamb of God to Bear our sin and defeat death overcome our fear of death and teach all Heaven and Earth to sing in Perfect Harmony
 today's our daily bread devotional scripture reading comes from the last book in the Bible Revelation chapter 5 verses 8 through 14
 and when he had taken at the four living creatures and the 24 Elders fell down before the lamb each one had a harp and they were holding golden bowls full of incense which are the prayers of God's people and they sang a new song saying you are worthy to take the scroll and to open it feels because you were slain and with your blood you purchased for God persons from every tribe and language and people and Nation you have made them to be a kingdom and Priests to serve our God and they will reign on the Earth
 then I looked and heard the voice of many angels numbering thousands upon thousands and 10000 x 10,000 they encircled the throne and the living creatures and the elders in a loud voice they were saying Worthy is the Lamb who was slain to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise then I heard every creature in heaven and on Earth and under the Earth and on the sea and all that is in them saying to him who sits on the throne and to the lamb be praise and honor and glory and power for ever and ever the four living creatures said amen and the elders fell down and worshipped

 Father in Heaven please help us to sense The Wonder of what you've done to give us a song that can be sung in Joy by everyone and every living creature thank you Lord Jesus it's in your name that we pray and worship amen
