The songs that the Holy Spirit commands us to sing are Psalms (Psalm 105:2; James 5:13). These are His songs (1 Chronicles 25:7; 2 Chronicles 29:27; Psalm 137:4). We have no command in God’s Word to offer anything else to Him in praise yet, sadly, the worship of God is often shaped by personal taste, fashions and what makes people feel most comfortable. This leaflet explains these principles further. It is extracted and updated from a book written by Thomas Ford, who was a member of the Westminster Assembly.
