Oh, sing to the Lord a new song!
Sing to the Lord, all the earth.
Sing to the Lord, bless His name;
Proclaim the good news of His salvation from day to day.
Declare His glory among the nations,
His wonders among all peoples.
This Psalm is one I used to sing quite a bit as a young man in the Christian faith. It was a song I wrote using this passage mixed a melody that felt like it danced upon the wind. Thinking back now… I miss this song. I may have to revive it!
But… all that aside, I also LOVE the first line of this Psalm!
Sing to the Lord a new song! That is not a declaration to get the latest, hottest new worship song and sing it. I believe what it is encouraging us to do is… to sing with a fresh expression of our hearts unto God. In other words… may a new song of worship arise from our life and being. It’s something that resides within our hearts… for we all were created to worship.
What are some of the new and fresh ways that to come to mind when we consider this encouragement to “sing a new song?” Pray about that and may we all desire more that than anything else… to honor and glory God with our worship daily. May we declare His glory through our worship as well. God is worthy!
