Today, singing psalms seems almost strange as we sing hymns and spiritual songs almost exclusively. But the Bible teaches us to sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs (Eph. 5: 19; Col. 3: 16). For centuries, the biblical book of Psalms was THE hymnbook of the Church! Today, we have each of the psalms set to familiar hymn tunes to help us sing them. Have you ever thought about how God feels when He hears His children singing His Word to Him as an act of worship? May your voice rejoice the heart of God as you exalt Him in singing a psalm.
