Have you ever written a song?
Do you like to sing?
If you answered yes to any of the above...
If you don’t know how then start by taking something right out of the Bible and making up a
tune to it. Or take a tune you already know and make up new words.
For example; take the tune of “Happy Birthday To You” (I picked "Happy Birthday To You"
because I thought almost everyone would know it).
Then you pick a topic you want to sing about. This song
is about writing songs!
This is my new song
I sing all day long
I’ll sing while I hop...
Until Dad says to “stop”!
The Bible says...
"Praise ye the LORD. Sing unto the LORD a new song, and
his praise in the congregation of saints.” Psalm 149:1
“Let them praise his name with dancing and make music to Him
with tambourine and lyre.” Psalm 149:3
“O Elohim, a new song I sing to You; On a harp of ten strings I
sing praises to You,” Psalm 144:9
“Oh sing to the LORD a new song, for he has done marvelous things!
His right hand and his holy arm have worked salvation for him.” Psalm 98:1
"Sing unto the LORD a new song, and
his praise from the end of the earth, ye that go down to the sea, and all
that is therein; the isles, and the inhabitants thereof. “ Isaiah 42:10
As you can see there is plenty of scripture that says to make a new song to YHWH.
Making a new song to YHWH is one of my favorite ways to praise and worship Him.
Do not try to make a song by yourself I found that it is hard to make a song sound
good without the help of YHWH.
I hope this encourages you to write your own song!
