In the Midst of the Church Will I Sing Praise unto Thee

Hebrews 2:12 KJV

[12] Saying, I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee.


“saying, “I will tell of your name to my brothers; in the midst of the congregation I will sing your praise.””

(Hebrews 2:12 ESVi)


In the midst of the church - That is, in the assembly of my brethren. The point of the proof urged by the apostle lies in the first part of the quotation. This latter part seems to have been adduced e.g.cite because it might assist their memory to have the whole verse quoted; or because it contained an interesting truth respecting the Redeemer - though not precisely a "proof" of what he was urging; or because it "implied" substantially the same truth as the former member.


It shows that he was united with his church; that he was one of them; and that he mingled with them as among brethren.


Will I sing praise - That the Redeemer united with his disciples in singing praise, we may suppose to have been in the highest degree probable - though, I believe, but a single case is mentioned - that at the close of the Supper which he instituted to commemorate his death; Matthew 26:30. This, therefore, proves what the apostle intended - that the Messiah was among them as his brethren - that he spoke to them as such - and mingled in their devotions as one of their number.

I will sing of the mercies of the Lord forever,

I will sing, I will sing,

I will sing of the mercies of the Lord forever,

I will sing of the mercies of the Lord.

With my mouth will I make known

Thy faithfulness, Thy faithfulness,

With my mouth will I make known

Thy faithfulness to all generations,

I will sing of the mercies of the Lord forever,

I will sing of the mercies of the Lord.


I Will Sing of the Mercies of the Lord
