The Holy Spirit obliged.
Along the lines of quotes about music which I did back in 2005, 2006, and 2007, below are some Bible verses (Douay-Rheims version) which have the word "sing." (The search engine found 89.) Most of them, as you would expect, are found in the Psalms.
I will be glad and rejoice in thee: I will sing to thy name, O thou most high.
Sing to him a new canticle, sing well unto him with a loud noise.
Sing praises to our God, sing ye: sing praises to our king, sing ye.
For God is the king of all the earth: sing ye wisely.
Sing to God, ye kingdoms of the earth: sing ye to the Lord: Sing ye to God.
It is good to give praise to the Lord: and to sing to thy name, O most High.
Come let us praise the Lord with joy: let us joyfully sing to God our saviour.
Sing joyfully to God, all the earth: serve ye the Lord with gladness. Come in before his presence with exceeding great joy.
I will sing to the Lord as long as I live: I will sing praise to my God while I have my being.
And let them sing in the ways of the Lord: for great is the glory of the Lord.
Sing praise, and rejoice, O daughter of Sion: for behold I come, and I will dwell in the midst of thee: saith the Lord.
Is any of you sad? Let him pray. Is he cheerful in mind? Let him sing.
Plenty of inspiration, both spiritually and musically.
Let those who pursue this art keep these things in mind.
St. Cecilia, pray for us.
