Music had been an important aspect of human life since the beginning of time; although the first reference to it is in connection with the ungodly line of Cain (Genesis 4:21). However, angels sang at the creation (Job 38:7), and Moses led the children of Israel in a victory song after the Red Sea crossing (Exodus 15:1-21). Deborah and Barak sang after their victory over the Canaanites (Judges 5). However, it was David, a musician composing most of the psalms, who institutionalized music in the formal worship of God, before and after the tabernacle was built (1 Chronicles 6:32). Although there are very few references to songs in the gospels and epistles (Matthew 26:30; Colossians 3:16; Ephesians 5:19), singing will play a prominent role in the heavenly congregation when Christ returns (Revelation 4:11; 5:8-14; 15:2-4).
