Beloved. The enemy would have you singing sad songs; songs of defeat, dirges and lamentations.
Change keys, My Child. Change from minor key to major.
My Music is in your heart, in your very DNA. Hear Me singing to you, Beloved. I AM surrounding you with songs of deliverance. My Song picks you up and carries you to higher ground.
My Song changes your song. Songs of death have become songs of LIFE. My Song is bringing forth My Glory in you. A NEW song shall come forth from your lips, My Bride.
Rise up, My love, My fair one, and come away. The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the Holy Spirit is heard in your land.
Sing with Me in the Spirit. My Song is powerful and pure. All things not of Me shall fall away. My Song is the Balm of Gilead for your soul and a spring of joy in your heart.
O My dove, you reside in the cleft of the Rock, in the Secret Place. Let Me hear your voice; for your voice is sweet to My Ear. Sing with Me the song of victory for surely it shall come to pass.
Major and minor keys: Can be used to refer to the greater and lesser versions of certain intervals in music. The main thing is that tonic chord to which the music returns home so often. “Home” in the first case is a cheerful optimistic lighthearted MAJOR triad, and in the other case is a tragic ominous forlorn MINOR.
Lament: In Hebrew is an expression of sorrow, a description of distress, or a protest about injustice. A prayerful plea to God for help. A dirge, a mournful song about the death or destruction of something or someone.

The fig tree puts forth her green figs, And the vines with the tender grapes Give a good smell. Rise up, my love, my fair one, And come away!
