PSALMS: SONGS OF ZION

Daily Devotional Psalm 132


There is a worship song that blesses me each time my church sings it. It’s called “We Will Feast in the House of Zion.” It speaks of a day when those in Christ will feast with Him and weep no more (Rev. 21:4), and when “we will sing with our hearts restored.”


Those the LORD has rescued will return. They will enter Zion with singing.

ISAIAH 51:11


We will indeed! Not only will the saints be singing into eternity, but there is a specific place where we will sing, called Zion. Zion is often used as another name for Jerusalem. Psalm 132 says that the LORD has both chosen Zion and desired it for His dwelling forever (vv. 13–14). It is where the nations will be gathered during His millennial reign in the age to come (Jer. 3:17; Zech. 2:10–12). And we will be singing before Him in Zion one day through the psalms, songs, and prayers from His Word.


God’s voice is heard loud and clear about His future dwelling place. Along with Psalm 132, another psalm proclaims that God has “installed my king on Zion, my holy mountain” (Ps. 2:6). The most quoted psalm in the New Testament is Psalm 110, which declares that the Lord will extend Christ’s “mighty scepter from Zion, saying, ‘Rule in the midst of your enemies!’” (Ps.110:2).


Based on the psalms alone, this is a call for us as well. While we sing songs about the cross of Christ, we are also called to sing about the crown of Christ, songs that proclaim and declare the future reign of Christ and His kingdom from Zion. Those the Lord has saved “will enter Zion with singing; everlasting joy will crown their heads” (Isa. 51:11). Ask God to give you this eternal perspective as you prepare to sing in worship this coming weekend.


Go Deeper


When we worship what is on our minds and hearts? Why did God’s people sing about Zion? What significance did it hold for them and what does it mean to us today?


Pray with Us:


Dear God, today we thank You for the eternal perspective You reveal to us in Your Word. Thank You for the promise that one day we will sing before You in Zion—songs and psalms from Your Word. What a glorious future!
