The Angels Sing

At Catalyst, we sang “We Shine” by Steve Fee.  Here’s a portion of the lyrics:

Yeah, yeah, we shine, we shine the light of God
And when we speak, we speak with words of love
And when we dance we may get a little wild
‘Cause we’re the people of God yeah, the people of God
And when we sing, we sing the angels’ songs
The ones they’re singing around the throne
Yeah, yeah, we worship the King with everything that we are
‘Cause we’re the people of God yeah, the people of God

It made me think.  Do the angels sing some of the same songs we’re singing here on earth?  I don’t have a Bible verse to back this up, but I believe they might.  God delights in His people, and I imagine He and the angels enjoy hearing our creative expressions of praise.  I wonder what songs we’ll be singing around the throne?  I imagine we’ll be singing some of my favorites.  What songs are you hoping we’ll sing?

    I’m sure that they do sing our songs. Don’t recall any of their lyrics being passed down. Who else would write them 🙂

    I’m sure they are singing my favorite song “Heaven is a Wonderful Place, Filled with glory and grace, I want to see my Savior’s face, ’cause heaven is a wonderful place.”

    Revelation 4: 11-12 – Then I looked and heard the voice of many angels, numbering thousands upon thousands, and ten thousand times ten thousand. They encirled the throne and the living creatures and the elders. In a loud voice the sang: “Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise!”

    So, yeah, the angels will be singing – our songs, their songs, any songs that glorify and magnify the Triune God. What I think will be really cool is that all songs will coexist in a beautiful symphony of music that is beyond our comprehension – the classic hymns with orchestrated music and modern praise music with the “rock” sound…

    …and no one screaming “It’s too loud! ” 🙂
