A joyful noise: can it be TOO hearty?



Make a joyful noise to the 
Lord, all the earth;
break forth into joyous song and sing praises!
— 
Psalm 98:4

Charles H. Spurgeon, in The Treasury of David,  says:

There is no fear of our being too hearty in magnifying the God of our salvation, only we must take care the song comes from the heart, otherwise the music is nothing but a noise in his ears, whether it be caused by human throats, or organ pipes, or far resounding trumpets. Loud let our hearts ring out the honours of our conquering Saviour; with all our might let us extol the Lord who has vanquished all our enemies, and led our captivity captive: He will do this best who is most in love with Jesus:

“I have found the pearl of greatest price,
My heart doth sing for joy;
And sing I must, a Christ I have.
Oh, what a Christ have I!”
