In Ephesians 5:15-21, we are given directions on how to properly live as Christians. One of these is to sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart.
Each Monday, I share a song from history or present day that present a high view of God, praise Him, and teaches solid doctrine.
Praise the Lord!
Praise God in His sanctuary;
Praise Him in His mighty expanse.
Praise Him for His mighty deeds;
Praise Him according to His excellent greatness.
Praise Him with trumpet sound;
Praise Him with harp and lyre.
Praise Him with timbrel and dancing;
Praise Him with stringed instruments and pipe.
Praise Him with loud cymbals;
Praise Him with resounding cymbals.
Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.
Praise the Lord! (Psalm 150)
Praise the Lord Who Reigns Above
by Charles Wesley (1743)
Praise the Lord who reigns above,
And keeps His courts below;
Praise the holy God of love,
And all His greatness show;
Praise Him for His noble deeds,
Praise Him for His matchless pow’r;
Him from whom all good proceeds
Let earth and heaven adore.
Celebrate th’eternal God
With harp and psaltery;
Timbrels soft and cymbals loud
In His high praise agree;
Praise Him ev’ry tuneful string;
All the reach of heav’nly art,
All the pow’rs of music bring,
The music of the heart.
Him, in whom they move and live,
Let ev’ry creature sing,
Glory to their Maker give,
And homage to their King.
Hallowed be His name beneath,
As in heav’n, on earth adored;
Praise the Lord in ev’ry breath,
Let all things praise the LORD!
