Singing is God’s Prescription for Anxiety

Singing is our prescription to anxiety

Ps 94-96 Facing Anxieties? Sing!

The psalmist shares his “antidote” to his anxious heart: “When my anxious thoughts multiply within me, Your consolations delight my soul.” [Ps 94:19] He then offers his medicinal prescription: “O come, let us sing for joy to the LORD, Let us shout joyfully to the rock of our salvation” [Ps 95:1] and further: “Sing to the LORD a new song; Sing to the LORD, all the earth.”Sing to the LORD, bless His name; Proclaim good tidings of His salvation from day to day.” [Ps 96:1-2]

Today I grabbed my BSF hymnal and rejoiced in song (hope you weren’t listening because I only make a joyful noise.)  and sang away. My favorite is the God of Abraham praise!

The God of Abraham praise,
who reigns enthroned above;
Ancient of Everlasting Days,
and God of Love;
Jehovah, great I AM!
by earth and heaven confessed;
I bow and bless the sacred name
forever blest.
