This psalm is similar to Psalm 95. David continues to encourage others to sing to the Lord a new song. How do you get a new song? If you know the Lord, He leads you to sing to Him. You tell Him that you will sing to Him a new song. You have run out of the other songs, and you want a new one from Him. Open your mouth, and use what you know.
I want to Sing to You, Lord. (This is admission that you want to Sing to Him.)
Now use what you have noted in Psalm 95, and 96 to make up a new song to the Lord.
O come, let us sing to the Lord a new song.
O come, let us sing to the Lord, who is my rock, and my salvation.
Come before Him with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise.
Beat the drums,
Get out the tambourines,
Skip, and dance, to the music.
For He is riding on the praises of His people.
He is enthroned by the praises of His people.
Sing to the Lord, a new song.
Sing of His majesty.
O, come on, and sing to Him.
He loves to hear you sing.
Sing to Him.
He is our God.
We are His sheep.
Sing to the Lord.
He is worthy of praises.
He is worthy of your praise.
Bow before Him.
Praise Him for His wondrous works.
Praise Him, for He is majestic.
He crowns you with Loving kindness, and tender mercies.
Sing to the Lord,
Sing to the Lord,
O, sing to the Lord a new song!
Do not be afraid to sing out without writing anything down. When the tune comes, it will linger long enough to tape it, or to write the notes down. Right now, the important part is to give God praise. Writing a new song is not important as much as giving Him your heart and your praise. He swells up inside you as you sing to Him. He loves to be sung to in worship. He is God, and He sits enthroned on your praises. He will teach you, if you will trust, and not be afraid.
