I am maintaining a " SONG BANK " with an intention to preserve all the songs ( of all denominations ) ,so that all the songs can be available for people who need it.
My " SONG BANK " is just in its Infant stage only.
Lucifer refused to Praise the LORD with songs, which later paved the way for God to Create human beings. The sole intention of God in creating us is just to Praise the Almighty LORD Who is worthy of all Praise and Glory.If we too fail to Praise the LORD with our songs, then it would mean that we too are going in Satans ways.
If we are really God's people ,we should greatly Love to sing the LORD and Praise Him.
We should spend sufficient time to get trained and to practice it also.

The jailer woke up ,
and when he saw the prison doors open,
he drew his sword and about to kill himself
because he thought the prisoners had escaped .
But Paul shouted,"Don't harm yourself ! We are all here !".
The jailor called for lights ,
rushed in and fell trembling

They replied ," Believe in the Lord Jesus,
and you will be saved - you and your household ."
