The music of the Gospel leads us home.
For you, O Lord, have made me glad by your work; at the works of your hands I sing for joy.
The best, most beautiful, and most perfect way that we have of expressing a sweet concord of mind to each other is by music.
God created us so that the joy He has in Himself might be ours. God doesn’t simply think about Himself or talk to Himself. He enjoys Himself! He celebrates with infinite and eternal intensity the beauty of who He is as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. And we’ve been created to join the party!
Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing praise.
No created powers can mar our Lord Jesus’ music, nor spill our song of joy. Let us then be glad and rejoice in the salvation of our Lord
I know the Bible is inspired because it inspires me.
It is not sufficient to offer the empty vessel of our joy unto God, or our singing voice in musical tune only; but also it is required that we fill our joyful voice with holy matter and good purpose, whereby God only may be reasonably praised.
And when the musician played, the hand of the Lord came upon him.
God is pleased with no music below so much as with the thanksgiving songs of relieved widows and supported orphans; of rejoicing, comforted, and thankful persons.
Worship is an inward feeling and outward action that reflects the worth of God.
Be filled with the Spirit, addressing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart
Beautiful music is the art of the prophets that can calm the agitations of the soul; it is one of the most magnificent and delightful presents God has given us.
I will sing to the Lord as long as I live; I will sing praise to my God while I have being.
I pray that this collection of quotes has inspired you to sing a new song to God. And you don’t even have to wait until Sunday at church to do it!
