Music surrounds us, teaches us, tugs our heartstrings, permeates our psyches. The LORD tells us through His prophets to make music to Him - glorifying Him and edifying our brethren. Christmas carols, for example, teach Scripture. Four notable setting of Christmas-related Scripture:
- Magnificat - Mary magnified the infant Lord while yet pregnant with Him.
- Benedictus - Zechariah blessed God after John's birth.
- Gloria in excelsis - angels proclaimed the good news to the shepherds.
- Nunc Dimittis - Simeon prayed upon seeing the Christ-child.Weigh your music by God's Word! Lies can be catch; the truth of Scripture is our norm, so steep yourself in musical settings of it. sing your Lord's praises at all times and in all places - join the Church choral!
Soli Deo gloria.
