Praising God by singing is a beautiful and heart-lifting way of worship. The call to do so is: shi•ru la•do•nai, sing to the Lord.
We witness this call at least 20 times in the Bible; most of these mentions are in Psalms, but not only. Here is a call by Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Aaron:
“And Miriam answered them, ‘Sing to the Lord, for he has triumphed gloriously,’”
Here is the Prophet Isaiah’s call:
“Sing to the Lord a new song, and his praise from the end of the earth, you who go down to the sea, and all that is in it; the islands, and their inhabitants”
The prophet, Jeremiah, finds saving the poor a reason for singing:
“Sing to the Lord, praise the Lord; for he has saved the soul of the poor from the hand of evildoers”
Here is a universal call for all nations to sing to the Lord:
“Sing to God, you kingdoms of the earth; O sing praises to the Lord; Selah”
And another beautiful, universal call to glorify salvation with a song:
“O sing to the Lord a new song; sing to the Lord, all the earth. Sing to the Lord, bless his name; announce his salvation from day to day”
Another song proclaiming God’s salvation that you may want to use in your congregation or family:
“Sing to the Lord, all the earth; tell of his salvation from day to day”
which translates to: ‘shi•ru la•do•nai kol ha•a•retz bas•ru mi•yom el yom ye•shu•a•to’.
And if you prefer to sing but not out loud, the New Testament offers a way to do so:
“Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord”
