- Songs of Zion
The Psalmist asks, "How shall we sing the LORD'S song in a strange land?" (Psa 137:4). Just as the ancient Israelites forgot how to sing their God given Songs of Zion during the Babylonian captivity, Christians today find themselves living amidst "an evil generation" (Luke 11:29), struggling against the national religion of secular humanism with its plethora of heathen doctrines. The results of that struggle are evident everywhere, even within the walls of the Christian church. What our pilgrim and puritan forefathers restored in high praise and worship of God have been largely displaced by a plethora of hymns of human origin. Some churches are returning to the Psalms of David, which formed the only known Christian hymnbook used by the early church. The Reformed Church of Israel aspires to reconstruct the ancient Songs of Zion as contained in the Biblical Book of Psalms, which formed the hymnal of our Israelite forefathers, bequeathed up early church, and restored by Calvin, Luther, Knox and others during the Reformation. These Songs of Zion comprise the battle cry of the Reformed Church of Israel, much as they did in Jehoshophat's day, when the singers went before the armies of Israel and their enemies were confounded in self destruction. Being a part of Holy Writ, the Psalms of David provide Holy Spirit inspired words of highest praise worship today, for all who will take up and sing "the LORD'S song in a strange land." Many of the Psalms have been set to four part musical notation. God is leading anointed Christian men and women in their search to reconstruct this ancient hymnbook of Israel bequeathed upon the new covenant church, which dates back for thousands of years. We encourage you to join with us as we all open our Bibles and begin singing the ancient Songs of Zion, which proclaim the light of God's pure word and sends the enemies of darkness to their sure destruction.

The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works
of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light (Romans 13:12).
