Psalm 137:4 How shall we sing the LORD’s song In a strange land?
God’s people were in a strange land. They had been taken off in captivity. Their captors wanted to hear them sing like they used to sing. They said that they couldn’t sing like before. They were suffering from their sin. They were in a strange land.
We, too, are in a strange land. Our songs come from our heart that is in heaven. We sing because we know the God of heaven. We sing because we love Him and look forward to being there with Him. We can sing because our future is certain.
