“Sing to the LORD a new song, his praise from the end of the earth, you who go down to the sea, and all that fills it, the coastlands and their inhabitants.”
(Isaiah 42:10 ESVi)
Sing unto the Lord a new song,.... On account of the new things before prophesied of, and now done; on account of redemption and salvation by Christ, and the conversion of the Gentiles through the light of the Gospel brought among them; the song of redeeming love, and for the Gospel, and regenerating grace; and not the Jews only, but the Gentiles also, are called upon to sing this song, as having a special share in the blessings, the subject of it: hence it follows,
His praise from the end of the earth; thither the Gospel being sent, and there made effectual to the conversion of many, these are exhorted to sing and show forth the praises of him who had called them out of Heathenish blindness and darkness into the marvellous light of the Gospel and grace of God:
Gill’s Exposition of the Entire Bible (Public Domain)
Once my life was filled with discord, sadness reigned within, For my heart was heavy laden with a weight of sin.
There's a new song in my heart since the savior set me free There's a new song in my heart 'tis a heav'nly harmony
All my sins are washed away in the blood of Calvary O what peace and joy nothing can destroy
There's a new song in my heart.
What a wondrous transformation in my life was wrought,
When I trusted Christ my Savior and His pardon sought.
Someday I will go to Heaven where the angels
sing, And I'll join their happy chorus praising Christ the King.
I shall never cease in praising Jesus Christ my Lord, For the wonderful salvation that He did accord.
