Are the Psalms really appropriate for New Testament worship?

Pastor H. Leverne Rosenberger

On the B.B.Warfield internet list an elder inquired why we should limit our worship praises to the O. T. Book of Psalms. "Christ is much more plainly and fully in the New Testament. How can we not explicitly mention Jesus, or the trinity, or Calvary, or resurrection on the 3rd day in our songs of praise?" he asked. Here is the response of an elder who sang mostly Gospel songs in his youth, and who graduated to "the great hymns of the church" for most of his adult life. Then he discovered that all the Psalms could be sung from Psalters, and that they have an edifying power like no other human composition.
