A new song…

Oh, sing unto the Lord a new song; sing unto the Lord, all the earth ~ Psalm 96.1

In Exodus, Moses and the people sang a new song as they were delivered from Egypt. They acknowledged God for His mighty deeds and praised him through song for their deliverance from slavedom.

Equally, when the Israelites were freed from their bondage in Assyria and later, Babylon, they praised God in song. The book of Psalms is full of examples of the people singing to the Lord a new song.

‘I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry. He brought me up also out of a horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings. And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD’ ~ Psalm 40:1-3.

We, like David, were once like this; our feet stuck in mire, our eyes sought that which would destroy, and our hearts were enslaved by the lusts of this world. However, through Jesus, we have a new song to sing. And it’s all about Him. As Apostle Paul said in Christ, we are new creatures…the old things have passed away and, behold, all things have become new.
