SING A NEW SONG

 

 

Sing to the Lord a new song

Exalt, ye, the Lord, with the words of your mouth

Lift up to the Lord a new song

Proclaim His great love, to all generations.

 

For great is the Lord and worthy to be praised

He is to be feared above all gods.

 

Worship the Lord in the splendor of His Light

Tremble before Him, all the Earth

 

Blessing and glory and honor and power,

Rejoice in the Lord, this very hour

For He is exalted, the King of our hearts,

So come now and reign now, Oh Ruler of all

Let Heaven cry out and let all the Earth sing

Oh, trees, clap your hands,

Come before Him rejoicing

Oh, Lord, judge the nations, the children of men

Here, now, as we worship, revive us again.

I’ve heard several different interpretations of the phrase “Sing a new song to the Lord” (Ps 33:3). Some say this means we should be always writing new music, relating to an unchanging God in the manner appropriate to our generation. Others, who are advocates of older music, say that what it really means is music from a changed heart.

Given that the older music was all based on pop music of the day, I’m inclined toward the first definition. However, see my essay on Contemporary vs. Traditional Worship for a more thorough explanation – hymn lovers will like what they read, I think.

This is a cool, exciting song in 6/8 that is a ton of fun. With the chorus progression in D, the guitars can have a lot of fun with alternate voicings – try something in Drop D.

The bridge is really intense – drive it.
