    It is good to sing praises to our God.—Ps. 147:1.


    A popular lyricist once said: Words make you think thoughts. Music makes you feel a feeling. But a song makes you feel a thought.What better thoughts could we “feel” than those that express praise and love for our heavenly Father, Jehovah?

    It is no wonder that singing is a prominent aspect of pure worship, whether we are alone when we sing or we are with the congregation of God’s people. How, though, do you feel about singing aloud with the congregation? Do you find it embarrassing?

    In some cultures, men may feel uncomfortable singing in public. This view can affect the whole congregation, especially if those taking the lead find reasons to hold back or to engage in other activities while the rest of the congregation is singing. (Ps. 30:12) If we truly consider singing as part of our worship, we certainly will not want to walk out on or be absent from that part of the meeting program.

    Speaking for myself here, but I can't carry a tune in a bucket with a lid on it. :) I know of many brothers/sisters who can sing well - it's lovely to hear them sing in tune with each other. There are some meetings where only a small number are in attendance - yet when the congregation sings wholeheartedly, it sounds as if the Hall is full.
