When you sing your praise, lament, and gratitude, you are not only—nor even principally—expressing your feelings or aspirations or beliefs. No, you are reconfiguring yourself as one who praises, one who laments, and one who is grateful, and at the same time making more intimate (more full of kisses and embraces and caresses and delight) your relation to the Lord to whom you sing. Even a theological commentary on the Song must resing it, even if against the will of its commentator; all the more for a true resinging on the part of a devoted reader. – Paul Griffiths, Song of Songs (Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible), Kindle Loc. 1348.
