'Song' in the Bible
Then Moses and the Israelites sang this song to the Lord. They said:I will sing to the Lord,for He is highly exalted;He has thrown the horseand its rider into the sea.
The Lord is my strength and my song;He has become my salvation.This is my God, and I will praise Him,my father’s God, and I will exalt Him.
Then Israel sang this song:Spring up, well—sing to it!
Therefore write down this song for yourselves and teach it to the Israelites; have them recite it, so that this song may be a witness for Me against the Israelites.
And when many troubles and afflictions come to them, this song will testify against them, because their descendants will not have forgotten it. For I know what they are prone to do, even before I bring them into the land I swore to give them.”
So Moses wrote down this song on that day and taught it to the Israelites.
Then Moses recited aloud every single word of this song to the entire assembly of Israel:

Then Hezekiah ordered that the burnt offering be offered on the altar. When the burnt offerings began, the song of the Lord and the trumpets began, accompanied by the instruments of David king of Israel.
The whole assembly was worshiping, singing the song, and blowing the trumpets—all of this continued until the burnt offering was completed.
