The sinner becomes the singer and the servant.

* “a desolate pit”, “the muddy clay” – This is our sin. We bring our sin to the Saviour.

* “a new song” – This is our song of salvation. This is the song that our Saviour has given to us.

* “Many will see…” We do not sing for ourselves. We do not live for ourselves. We live for the Lord. We are to win people for Him.

Before a song can be a song of praise, it must be a song of salvation. We praise God because He has saved us.
