A Reason to Sing

Do you need a reason to sing today?

O come, let us sing unto the LORD:
let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation. 
Psalm 95:1

I am grateful for my voice, 
but others may not be so excited to hear me sing.
Yet, we are encouraged by the Psalmist 
to join in the chorus to the Lord our God, 
even if it is only a joyful noise.

How can we not be joyful when we pause and think of our Rock- 
the One who gave us salvation!

My lips shall greatly rejoice when I sing unto thee; 
and my soul, which thou hast redeemed.  
Psalm 71:23

Sing to God because He is merciful,
He is your strength, your defense!

Unto thee, O my strength, will I sing: 
for God is my defense, and the God of my mercy.
Psalm 59:17

Sing because He is righteous!

They shall abundantly utter the memory of thy great goodness, 
and shall sing of thy righteousness.  
Psalm 145:7

Sing because God has done excellent things for us!

Sing unto the LORD; for he hath done excellent things:
this is known in all the earth.  Isaiah 12:5

When you are feeling low-
When you are on the mountain top-
Day or night, it is a good time to sing.

Let the saints be joyful in glory: 
let them sing aloud upon their beds. 
Psalm 149:5
