The New Song

With a characteristically exalted expression of joy and gratitude, the Psalmist exclaimed: "Praise ye the Lord. Sing unto the Lord a new song, and his praise in the congregation of saints."

Was it not the spirit of these words that went before the army of Jehoshaphat, when it was surrounded by what seemed to be overwhelming numbers? Having the spiritual perception of God's law, which is ever operating to bring deliverance to those in any age who whole-heartedly acknowledge God's ever-presence and omnipotence, Jahaziel the Levite said to Jehoshaphat and all the people, "Ye shall not need to fight in this battle: set yourselves, stand ye still, and see the salvation of the Lord with you, O Judah and Jerusalem: fear not, nor be dismayed." And then, when the singers "went out before the army," joyfully praising God, the enemy were struck with dismay and confusion, and their destruction followed.

The shepherds, awake and watchful, caught the song of the angels, "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men." This is the song Christian Science is bringing to every alert consciousness; and as we understand more fully its meaning, we sing it anew each day. Thus we attain to radiant victory over fear, strife, lack, envy—all discord. As these are dispelled, we bring into our experience harmony, joyfulness, and an abundance of good.
