The word sing is mentioned 158 times in the New International Version of the Bible, most of them in the Old Testament. There are many other music references beside these. So we know that music and singing are an important part of the Christian life. When Mary found out she was pregnant with the Son of God and visited her friend, Elizabeth, who was pregnant with John the Baptist she sang a song which is recorded in Luke chapter one.
I praise the Lord with all my heart.
I am very happy because God is my Savior.
I am not important,
but he has shown his care for me, his lowly servant.
From now until the end of time,
people will remember how much God blessed me.
Yes, the Powerful One has done great things for me.
His name is very holy.
He always gives mercy
to those who worship him.
He reached out his arm and showed his power.
He scattered those who are proud and think great things about themselves.
He brought down rulers from their thrones
and raised up the humble people.
He filled the hungry with good things,
but he sent the rich away with nothing.
God has helped Israel—the people he chose to serve him.
He did not forget his promise to give us his mercy.
He has done what he promised to our ancestors,
to Abraham and his children forever.
Luke 1:46-55 (ERV)
Psalm 96:1 encourages us to sing a new song to God. Anyone can write a song - it doesn't have to rhyme or sound poetic. Why don't you write a song to God, thanking and praising him for all the good things he has done for you?
