(3) And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints.
“The song of Moses the servant of God” is probably talking about one of the two songs related to Moses found in the Bible:
- Exodus 15:1-19 – the song that is sung at the deliverance of the Israelites deliverance from Egypt bondage
- Deut 31:30-32:43 – the song sung just prior to Moses’s death.
Why would both of these be called the song of the Lamb? Both of these glorify Christ (Exodus 15:1 and Deut 32:3)…
Exo 15:1 KJV – “Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto the LORD, and spake, saying, I will sing unto the LORD, for he hath triumphed gloriously: the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea…”
Deu 32:3 KJV – “Because I will publish the name of the LORD: ascribe ye greatness unto our God…”
Moses led the children of Israel to sing both of these songs which brought honor and glory to Jehovah. What a wonderful testimony Moses left for the Israelites and us as well…
Following miraculous delivery of the Israelites from Egyptian bondage, Moses refused to take credit for this wonderful escape but, instead, led them to sing praises to the Lord for His gracious deliverance. Then, as one of his last actions on earth, Moses led the Israelites to praise and honor Jehovah for all He had done for them.
Then from our text, we can see that we will follow his great example at His second coming, by singing songs to glorify and honor the Lord for His salvation and final wrath that will be shown against lost mankind.
Even today, may we seek to follow Moses’ example by glorifying the Lord for His many wondrous works in our lives and seek to leave an example of a life dedicated to honoring the Lord even until the day of our death.
