Cross Words: The hymn Jesus sang with His disciples
I’m excited to share with you a beautiful connection between Psalm 118 and Jesus Christ. Jesus and His disciples were eating a Passover meal together. We call it the Last Supper. After partaking of bread and wine, the Bible briefly mentions the hymn Jesus sang with His disciples. “And when they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives” (Mark 14:26 ESV) (Mark 14:26 ESV). What were they singing on such an occasion? Well, that’s where Psalm 118 comes into play. My commentary notes, “The following psalms, 113-118, are defined by ancient Jewish tradition as a sequence for us in holy holidays, notably during the Passover supper.
And when I read Psalm 118, this makes perfect sense.
- It’s liturgical in nature and made for more than one voice.
- Let Israel say, ‘His steadfast love endures forever.’ Let the house of Aaronsay, ‘His steadfast love endures forever.’ Let those who fear the LORD say, ‘His steadfast love endures forever’” (v.
- 1-4 ESV).
- 5), acknowledges that God is on his side (v.
- 8-9), and worships God for helping him succeed despite the enemies that had surrounded him (v.
- Then, he says, “The LORD is my strength and my song; he has become my salvation.
14-16 ESV) (v.
The songwriter continues by speaking life over death, even though God’s discipline had come upon him (v.
Then, he asks the LORD to open the gates of righteousness—the gate of the LORD.
The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone.
This is the day that the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
O LORD, we pray, give us success!
These verses are full of depth, imagery, and power.
So are we.
Remember, Psalm 118 was sung during Passover.
The Passover festival can be traced back to Exodus 12 when God had the Israelites mark their doorposts with lamb blood in order to escape the LORD’s wrath on Pharaoh.
By His shed blood on the cross, God “passes over” our sin and offers us mercy and grace.
Jesus sang about Himself and His people as He joined with His disciples in song after the Passover meal.
After all, Jesus claims, “‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life.
He is our Passover lamb.
(Psalm 118:22; Acts 4:11).
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!’” (Mark 11:9 ESV) as Jesus enters Jerusalem shortly before Passover.
Who knew that Jesus would later sing that hymn about Himself and our redemption?
One of praise and redemption.
All because of Jesus, the Lamb of God.
“Oh give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever!” (Psalm 118:29 ESV). Isaiah Pauley is passionate about sharing Jesus in a simple way. Follow the journey of this young pastor aton Facebook at Isaiah Pauley Page, or on Instagram @isaiahpauley.
What Did Jesus Sing?
Long-haired Jesus strumming his guitar and singing out a ballad isn’t something I can envision happening. I can’t see Him applauding and tapping his toes in time to praise songs. Do you think He’ll be singing at a Bill Gaither “Homecoming” event sometime? Images of Jesus Christ singing may appear weird at first glance, given that the Bible never depicts Jesus singing while working in a carpenter shop, let alone in front of an audience. Is it true that Jesus’ mother Mary ever forced him to take piano lessons as a child?
- Have you ever soloed the Sabbath song while dressed in a choir robe?
- According to theologians, Jesus was totally human.
- You and I both know how many times songs have buoyed us up when nothing else could—songs like “Amazing Grace,” “There Is A Fountain,” “Awesome God,” and “God Will Take Care of You,” to name a few favorites.
- But what was the song that Jesus sang?
- It was right before Gethsemane and Golgotha that Jesus is said to have sung, according to what we know.
- “And after they had sang a hymn, they walked out to the Mount of Olives,” Mark and Matthew wrote on the first Maundy Thursday, the day following the Last Supper and the first day of Passover (Matthew 26:30, Mark 14:26).
- Observant Jews continue to do so.
They most likely sung two parts, one before the dinner and one after the meal, to accompany the food.
What do you think Jesus was thinking or feeling as He sung these words?
What did Jesus think when the 12-voice ensemble sung these verses, knowing that the torturous execution was just hours away?
The lunch was over, Judas had gone out into the night, and the eleven of them were gathered around the empty plate when Jesus sang, “With the Lord on my side, I have no fear.” What are mortals capable of doing to me?
Easter must have been brimming in our Lord’s heart when He sung, “I will not die but live, and I will declare what the Lord has done,” I have to believe (Psalm 118:17 KJV).
Then, during your daily quiet time, hum, chant, or sing a few lines from Jesus’ last song in your own voice.
He also worked as an editor for the Herald of Holiness (which was the predecessor toHoliness Today) and the Preacher’s Magazine, among other publications.

Jesus begins to sing. If the Bible didn’t say so, I wouldn’t believe it either. However, it is correct. In four different places in the Bible, we read that Jesus, the Son of God, lifted his voice in praise. 1 On the surface, this appears to be a bit complicated. The reason for this is not that I believe singing is inherently evil; rather, I believe our Savior is far more appropriately served as the quiet recipient of devotion and praise (Revelation 5:6–14). However, he also sings. And the only way to understand why Jesus sings is to take a quick trip through each of the four passages mentioned above (here split into three categories).
First, Matthew 26:30 and Mark 14:26 are two parallel texts picturing Jesus “singing a song of praise.”
Both paragraphs are rather brief. At the conclusion of the Lord’s Supper, we are told that Jesus and the disciples joined in singing a song. It happened right before he was about to go for the Mount of Olives to pray. In the midst of their companionship, Jesus lifted his voice and sang a song, as was usual at the conclusion of their Passover meal together. That’s all there is to it. There isn’t much else to say about it in the Bible according to the authors. This was very certainly a passage from Psalm 114–118, and it was almost certainly performed antiphonally, which means that Jesus lead the men in singing a line, and the disciples reacted by singing a “Hallelujah” in response.
2 Given the highly messianic lyrics of the songs and the date of the dinner, I assume it was a remarkable evening of somber theological meditation for everyone present.
Jesus performed a song.
Second, Hebrews 2:12 pictures Jesus “singing a song of praise.”
We discover a quotation from Psalm 22:22, which is a magnificent messianic psalm, in the following paragraph written by a New Testament author. The psalm appears to be used to highlight the unity that exists between the incarnate Christ and his disciples and followers. Christ’s devotion to participating in community worship appears to have been included into his incarnation. And, if this is accurate, it sheds light on his dedication to local synagogues throughout his ministry. However, this may also provide some insight into why Jesus sings with his followers.
He was a part of their daily lives, sharing in their human experiences (Hebrews 2:14).
The fact that Christ stood with us did not make him feel humiliated.
What an incredible act of kindness that he was not embarrassed to suffer and die in our place!
Jesus, in his role as the ideal worshipper, led the people in praises to the Father. And, as we will see in a minute, he has not stopped singing praises to the Father. However, we must recognize that Jesus sung because he is our Brother in this instance.
Third, Romans 15:9 pictures Jesus singing and playing an instrument, fulfilling the role as the Church’s chief worship leader.
The Apostle Paul also quotes from the Old Testament, namely a phrase from David and his hymn of thankfulness, in this concluding section (Psalm 18:49). However, in the Old Testament language, we see a singer who is involved in more than just a solo performance. The singing now involves the use of an instrument, and David takes on the position of a worship leader (), which is akin to that of a pastor. Once again, a corporate motif develops in this passage. It goes without saying that any Jewish worship leader could lead the Jewish people in prayer.
It is not the case that this worship leader will sing in spite of the Gentiles, but rather that he will sing amongthe Gentiles.
The risen Christ has triumphed and has taken his rightful place as the world’s foremost worship leader.
- Jesus mediates all of our interactions with God (God-to-man)
- Jesus mediates all of our worship of God (man-to-God)
- And Jesus mediates all of our interactions with one another.
Christ’s two-fold mediation ministry is inextricably linked together. In response to the finished work of the risen Christ, people all around the world are praising and worshiping God. The Perfect Worshipper of his Father is demonstrated in this fashion by Jesus. And Jesus performs the duty of Chief Worship Leader of the entire worldwide church from his heavenly throne. Behind the collective worship in our local church, and behind the worldwide worship of the nations, there is a mediator, a brother, the Perfect Worshipper, and our perfect Worship Leader who is at the center of it all.

Jesus Sings – Heritage Lutheran Church and School
Following the singing of the song, the group proceeded out to the Mount of Olives. 26:30 (Matthew 26:30) Although we don’t frequently think of Jesus as a singer, He did. He bowed his head in reverence and homage to the Almighty God and Father. Even while we can speculate for hours on end about what His voice sounded like, we know for certain that He sang with more than just his voice—He lifted His entire heart in gratitude. This serves as a reminder that God want to be worshipped through song.
- However, there can be little question that Jesus was the one who led the singing.
- The washing of feet, Jesus’ teaching, the Lord’s Supper, and Jesus’ protracted “high priestly prayer” for his present and future disciples are all part of the Christian tradition.
- That Jesus could sing on this night before His crucifixion is quite astounding.
- Jesus has the ability to actually be our worship leader.
- It doesn’t really matter whether or not it is pleasing to us at the time.
- Traditionally, a Passover dinner would conclude with the singing of the Hallel, which is composed of Psalms 116-118.
- When I got to that point, I screamed out to the LORD, saying, “O LORD, I entreat You, deliver my soul!” 116:3,4 (Psalm 116:3,4) Because You have saved my soul from death, my eyes from weeping, and my feet from tumbling down the stairs.
(Psalm 116:8-9; 116:10) My hands will take up the cup of salvation, and I will call on the name of the LORD.
The death of His saints is seen as extremely valuable in the eyes of the LORD.
All of you, peoples, should praise Him!
LORD, you have been my strength and song.
(Psalm 118:13-14; 119:13-14) I will not perish, but I will live and proclaim the deeds of the LORD to the end of time.
I will enter through the gates of righteousness, and I will give thanks to the LORD for opening them for me.
This was the work of the Lord, and it is magnificent in our sight.
God, You are my God, and I will sing Your praises; You are my God, and I will glorify Your name.
It was recited or sung in a melody and meter that have since been lost to us.
Do you believe you would be able to sing after your final meal if you knew that you were going to be caught and executed as a criminal later that evening?
Because no one but God knows what this day will bring.
In the midst of every calamity, peril, and unanticipated disaster, no one but God knows what benefits he will shower upon you and your family.
I shall continue to call on Him as long as I live because He has lent me an ear and because He has shown me mercy.
5The Lord is kind and just; indeed, our God is compassionate. 6The Lord protects the simple; I was brought to my knees, and He delivered me. 7Return to your rest, O my soul, because the Lord has dealt generously with your circumstances. -Psalm 116:1, 2, and 5 -Pastor Anderson, in his sermon
Text that is easy to print Freedom is beckoning, chains are tumbling, and hope is shining bright and true in the morning sky. The day is breaking, the night is quaking, and God is remaking everything. Jesus is the one who saves. Hear the pounding of the heart of Heaven, Jesus rescues, Jesus saves, Jesus saves, .and the stillness of mercy breathing: “Jesus saves, Jesus saves.” “Glory to the newborn King,” may be heard being sung by a multitude of angels. And the joyous music keeps on playing.
See how even the most modest hearts worship Him, and how Jesus rescues, Jesus saves They bow down before Him, and Jesus rescues them all.
See the sky ablaze with adoration, melting the darkness with its rays of light.
Jesus is the one who saves.
Jesus saves, Jesus saves.
While the empty tomb proclaims that Jesus rescues freedom’s calling, bonds are crumbling and the dawn of real hope is breaking through.
Freedom is beckoning, chains are tumbling, and hope is shining bright and true in the morning sky.
Jesus is the one who saves.
Jesus rescues, rising up so large and powerfully, lifting up the hymn of salvation.
