Colossians 3:16 (KJV)

“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.” Colossians 3:16 (KJV)

“I will declare thy name unto my brethren; in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee.” Hebrews 12:2 (KJV)

To be able to express ourselves in song in a blessing from God. Not just beautiful melody and harmony, but a heartfelt expression lifted up to Him. The scriptures admonish us to sing “Psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your hearts to the Lord” (Ephesians 5:19). Additionally, we are admonished to “sing with the spirit…and with the understanding also” (II Corinthians 14:15). Other creatures of God’s universe have their own unique sound, but it is human beings that are able to express their deepest convictions and faith with a song.

We worship God because He has changed our lives. We offer praise to Him for His loving kindness toward us. The Bible says to “Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands. Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing” (Psalms 100:1-2). Making a joyful noise with gladness and singing is a means to worship God.

Singing a hymn is an expression of the soul and a reflection of our convictions and, most likely, of the condition of our spiritual life. We can praise God wherever we are because a song can always be in the spirit. Songs can convey our sincere emotions like nothing else can. They can inspire, motivate, and encourage us. Hymns should honor the providence of God, the birth, life, death, and resurrection of His Son Jesus Christ, and the power of His Holy Spirit in the world.
