New Song

In 1982, Rocky III came out with its new theme song ‘The Eye of the Tiger’.

“It’s the eye of the tiger, it’s the thrill of the fight,

Risin’ up to the challenge of our rival”

This song was heard in many gyms and in the headphones of many athletes.  There are very few things as powerful as a good song.  Words from a good song can raise us to the highest heights and energise us to the hardest task.  Everyone needs a song in their life.

1Sing to the Lord a new song; sing to the Lord, all the earth.

2 Sing to the Lord, praise his name; proclaim his salvation day after day.

3 Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous deeds among all peoples.

Psalm 68

We are called to sing a new song to our God and to sing it daily.  We are called to sing to the people around us so that they may join in our song.  We sing about all the good things He has done for us.

Why not start the year afresh by literally learning a new Christian song or hymn?  Sing it and inspire yourself and others with Bible truths!  If you can’t sing, why not write a new song – buy a blank book and write down all the marvellous things he has done for you and re-read it again and again and tell others.  Our world needs new songs for its current songs are self absorbed and tired.

He has put a new song in my mouth… many will see it and fear, and will trust in the Lord. (Ps 40)
