It is good to give thanks to the LORD,
And to sing praises to Your name, O Most High;
To declare Your lovingkindness in the morning,
And Your faithfulness every night,
On an instrument of ten strings,
On the lute,
And on the harp,
With harmonious sound.
For you, LORD, have made me glad through Your work;
I will triumph in the works of Your hands.
I love these verses because they show that we are to thank and praise God through music. Sometimes, we find ourselves letting the choir do it but it is also our responsibility to confess that God is good through songs and instruments. After all he has done for me I couldn’t let another day go by without asking Him to fill my heart with songs of praise to his holy name. Won’t you join me even if you do it just between you and God? He still appreciates it.
