INSTRUMENTS OF THE LORD

Psalm 150:1,3-6 “Praise the Lord. Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens. Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet, praise him with the harp and lyre, praise him with the tambourine and dancing, praise him with strings and flute, praise him with the clash of cymbals. Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord.”
