“The Christian Church was born in song.” Those are the words of Ralph Martin in his book called Worship in the Early Church.

We are a singing people. And there is a reason for this. The reality of God and Christ and creation and salvation and heaven and hell are simply too great for mere speaking; they must also be sung.

This means that the reality of God and his work is so great that we are not merely to think truly about it, but also feel duly about it.
