St. Paul the Apostle writes, “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord” (Colossians 3:16). Christians sing to the Lord, praising and glorifying His blessed Name. Christ’s church confesses Him who died and rose again on the third day according to the Holy Scriptures. She proclaims His praises and in her song, sings His Word and doctrine.
