I have always been impressed with what the Scriptures said about singing and music. God is so orderly and precise and His instructions so easy to follow. Our family loves to sing too and we are always surprised by people who DON'T sing. Thank you for sharing this study on the subject and sing, sing, sing, unto the Lord joyfully. Love, Gammy
