Launderer’s Soap, My Heart’s Only Hope

Not as catchy for a song about being purified, but while reading “For he will be like a refiner’s fire or a launderer’s soap” in Malachi, I thought about Brian Doerksen’s, popular song Refiner’s Fire.

I started to sing not “Refiner’s fire, my heart’s one desire”,  but “Launderer’s soap, my heart’s only hope”.

The image is not as grand as a fire purifying my heart, but I do choose to be washed and scrubbed and tossed and spun and lathered and agitated and rinsed and spun again and then hung out to dry in the Son, to be holy, and set apart for you, my Lord.

Launderer’s Soap…my heart’s only Hope!
