"Singing With The Understanding"

In 1 Corinthians 14:15, Paul indicates that we should sing with both spirit and understanding as we praise God. The context of this statement shows that some in the church at Corinth were singing in a language not understood by others, hence they could not all sing with understanding.

Today, many members of the Lord’s church do not fully understand the meaning of some words in the various songs we sing in worship to God. Such misunderstandings are caused by several factors, including:

(1) figures of speech.
(2) archaic terms.
(3) words that are very seldom used.
(4) ignorance of Bible teaching that may be alluded to in the song.

In light of the above, let us look at the following hymns and note some of the definitions of words and phrases contained in these hymns:
