These types of experiences cause people to feel united, whether it’s in celebration, hardship, or another specific purpose. The psalms of ascent worked this same way for the people of Israel. These songs were sung while traveling together to Jerusalem for annual festivals. They were songs of joy for those who follow God’s ways, cries for help to the Lord, singing of God’s sovereignty, of humble surrender, of praise for His protection, and affirmations of who they placed their hope in. In other words, these were songs for the journey, songs that were sung by people in all seasons of life, as they came and went, as they journeyed.
