Good morning PraisingSoul,
I think the writers of the hymns understood what it meant to adore God. Just read through the lyrics in your hymnal sometime. The hymns are more than just music; they are poetry, instruction, encouragement, wisdom, exhortation and precious letters of love. They are songs of repentance, songs of victory and songs of praise. They reflect the light of God s Word, and remind us to take our eyes off ourselves and put them on Jesus where they belong. When I read them, I am moved, and when I sing them, my soul is stirred. They carry me to a place of pure love.
What a thrill it is to wrap my heart and humming around the melodies that have praised God for generations. I hope that in some small way, these songs that have survived the ages and remain alive and present in the hearts of modern worshippers around the world will continue to survive deep into the generations of ones who follow.
Look up, always look up, and give Him praise. In the darkness, give him praise. Through joy or suffering, give him praise. Never cease to praise him.
Yes, I adore Him… and often with a deep, rapturous love.

‘speaking to one another in psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, singing and making music from your heart to the Lord, giving thanks always for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,’ (‭Ephesians‬ ‭5‬:‭19-20‬ HCSB)

Wake up.
Praise.
Go.
