{A very worthy listen today, from his devotions yesterday at Desiring God:
John Piper on The Role of the Poetry in the Life of the Christian}

Piper quotes Edwards:
… “Singing of praises to God seem to be appointed wholly to excite and express religious affections.

No other reason can be assigned why we should express ourselves to God in verse, rather than in prose , and do it with music, but only, that such is our nature and frame, that these things have a tendency to move our affections….

Jonathan Edwards, Religious Affections, Yale:115
