I will sing a new song to you, O God!
I will sing your praises with a ten-stringed harp.
For you grant victory to kings!
You rescued your servant David from the fatal sword.
New Living Translation (NLT)
Singing praise to God and worshiping Him with harps, lyres, horns, and percussion is referenced to many times in the Bible. We are encouraged to sing and dance and be joyful in the presence of the Lord. Why wouldn't we be? Music goes to the heart of our being and paces our lives with the rhythm of our souls.
Is anyone among you in trouble? Let them pray. Is anyone happy? Let them sing songs of praise.
New International Version (NIV)
