Singing the Psalms

I pulled out an old songbook that my wife and I put together in 1999.  It’s called, “Singing the Psalms.”  It’s comprised of all the Psalms of Ascent (Psalms 120-134) put to music (plus a few more).  We used to sing these songs often with our children, but probably haven’t done so for a decade.

Anyway, my daughter saw the booklet and proceeded to plunk out the songs on the piano, remembering every single one of them.

My point?  Music is a help to memory.  It’s important that the songs we sing in church are doctrinally strong and theologically robust, as we will remember them for years to come.
