The Bible admonishes us in Ephesians 5:19 to speak to ourselves in psalms, hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in our hearts to the Lord. A hymn usually includes a call to the congregation to join in praise (Ps. 33:1-3), a list of reasons to praise God (Ps. 33:4-19), and a concluding call to praise or statement of trust (Ps. 33:20-22).
These hymns to take us to the presence of God anytime we sing them, even as we meditate on His wondrous works, to the glory of His Holy name. Today, the hymnal is known as the companion to the Bible because hymns play a part in Christian life.
As you sing, praise and worship to God in hymns, may He take care of every situation of your life, in Jesus Name.
