SINGING SCRIPTURE

“When we worship, Christ is not only the audience of our songs, but through his Spirit he is also the singer (Eph 5:18-20)” Bryan Chapell (ref#66, p88).

Think about that for a moment. Us, joining the SPIRIT to sing to the FATHER and the SON!

To let the SPIRIT have His freedom, I have suggested an open-ended way of singing.  With each post that is written in verse, an 8-measure chord progression is included at the top of the page to be used for accompaniment. By playing two chords in 4/4 time for each line sung means the entire progression is played every set of four lines, and then repeated.

For example:

C                      F

Shout for joy and be glad,

Bdim                              Em

And let me say, “Great is the LORD” (Ps 35:27-28).

Am                                   Dm

My tongue shall tell of Your righteousness

G7                            C                           

And of Your praise all the day long (Ps 35:28).

 

“Sing to the Lord, O you saints of His, and give thanks at the remembrance of His holy name”(Ps 30:4 AMP). “…we delight to praise what we enjoy because the praise not merely expresses but completes the enjoyment; it is its appointed consummation” C. S. Lewis (ref#130, p201).
