Psalm 19 does something similar for us: it is shock therapy for bored Christians sitting in church wondering whether we will hear anything new. Psalm 19 stops us in our tracks and invites us to listen to the music that is already playing, it drops us headfirst into a world bursting with more meaning than we could possibly imagine. It says the sound of the world and the sound of the word are more than just noise, more than mere sound. What we will find if we will listen is speech, a voice, communication.
