As Edward Donnelly has expressed it, ‘the Psalms are part of the spiritual inheritance of all the people of God.’ It is a simple historical fact that the psalms have dominated the praise of the Christian church for 3000 years. Reformed Presbyterians today share gladly in that rich inheritance. Whatever else Christians believe they should sing in worship, one thing is absolutely certain – they should sing the psalms. One of the great tragedies of the modern church is its almost total neglect of these wonderful songs of praise. How many Christians, if asked which book of the Bible is their favourite, would reply ‘the Psalms’? Is it not a pity they have so few opportunities to sing them in worship – to use them as they were designed to be used?
