Jesus Worshipped through Song and So Can You

“And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body.
“And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it;
“For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.
“But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father’s kingdom.
“And when they had sung an hymn, they went out into the mount of Olives.“

Matthew 26:26–30

During the final moments of the Savior’s earthly ministry, during the Last Supper, Jesus sang hymns with His disciples. Knowing what was about to occur in the Garden of Gethsemane and what would follow, His example of finding strength through song is truly inspiring.

Here are some of the ways you can participate:
