To the Chief Musician. On An Instrument of Gath. A Psalm of Asaph. Sing aloud to God our strength; Make a joyful shout to the God of Jacob.Raise a song and strike the timbrel, The pleasant harp with the lute. Blow the trumpet at the time of the New Moon, At the full moon, on our solemn feast day.
Look at this short but joy filled description of a solemn feast day. Compare with a current LORD's Day 'worship' service that tends to equate solemn with a long sad face. Not so in Israel, they knew that the LORD, God, the Almighty had rescued them from slavery; from servitude, from the onerous and cruel hand of Pharaoh.
Does the LORD care that I can't carry a tune in a rusty bucket? Doesn't He want to hear joy and thanksgiving in my voice as I sing, “Praise the Savior, Ye Who Know Him”? And from all assembled to worship Him? Look at the title of that precious hymn. Praise the Savior! Praise the Savior! Praise the Savior! Praise the Savior! Praise the Savior! Praise the Savior!
Let us assemble this coming LORD's Day with joy in our praise-filled hearts and pouring out through worshipful voices. We gather in thanksgiving and praise, not dolor!
