A new song is a musical composition. A new song usually uses musical notation, but can also be written without using it. Musicians often create songs and pieces without ever writing them down, such as when a band collaborates on a single song or when someone improvises a melody or chord progression. The Bible speaks of a new song being sung by the redeemed people in Revelation 14:3. Although there is much debate over who these 144, 000 are and whether they are Christians or not, one thing is clear—they are people who have been redeemed by Jesus Christ.
Throughout history, God’s people have been able to experience the joy of singing his new song to him. When a new song is sung, it’s a celebration of what he has done and of the good news of his love. In some cases, a new song is sung after a series of evangelistic meetings that result in conversions or when a congregation has moved into a beautiful new building after completing a construction program.
The new song of the redeemed people in Revelation 14:3 is a song of praise for the Lord’s redemptive work. It’s easy to get caught up in the debate about who these 144, 000 are and why they need to be redeemed, but let’s not forget that the most important thing is that they sing this new song!

One of the more intriguing aspects of The Little Mermaid’s live-action remake is the addition of a new song for Ariel. The song, “For the First Time,” allows the character to express herself in a way that was not possible in the 1989 animated film and helps the movie move its story along more effectively by giving Ariel a sense of agency after she loses her voice.
