The content and themes of the Songs of Ascents focused the pilgrims’ minds on the purpose of their journey and prepared their hearts to worship God when they reached Jerusalem. In the same way, the themes of these songs can help us on our pilgrimage. They can help us press on when we grow tired. They can inspire us when we are tempted or feel discouraged. Above all, they can keep us focused on the God who is at the heart of our true home and who is also with us on the journey.
