“I will sing a new song unto Thee, O God; upon a psaltery and an instrument of ten strings will I sing praises unto Thee,” Psalm 144:9.
“Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place?” Psalm 24:3.
“Where are those who have come into my sanctuary? Who are these that “appear” to worship me? They stand in a church made with the hands of man, and they sing their songs to me. But are they singing them to me, or about me?
David sang songs to me. He lifted up his harp and sang songs about the rocks and the fields. He poured forth his heart. He sang as an orchestra would play their melodies unto me. Now your songs come from books, and they are not written on the tablets of your hearts. But now there is pomp and circumstance.
Would that you would sing a new song unto me; that it would spring up from your own heart. That it would speak of the things that I have done for you. That it would come from your own heart; that it would pour forth unto gratitude and repentance.
That it would come from a heart that has sat before me. That it would come from a heart that has wept before me. But you are a people who has not known me. You speak about me, and your sermons tell of my wondrous deeds. They speak of a God from the past.
But I AM in the present. I AM alive and I AM not just as one that is written about. But to those who know me, I will make myself known.
Come into my sanctuary. For my sanctuary is not found in your houses of stone. I would take up an abode in your heart.”
