Sing a new song. That’s the first command given in this text. A new song could be new in kind, one that has never before been heard. A new song could also be an old song you sing with new spiritual eyes. It may be a song you have sung hundreds of times, but because of some life experience, the song now takes on new meaning to you as you sing it. We are reminded in Lamentations 3:23 that the Lord’s mercies are new every morning. Since that is the case, every day we should have a new song that stems from His new mercies.
Let’s begin each day with a “new song in our heart, since the Savior set me free.” (John W. Peterson) I think the day will go much better if we do.
