To me, singing is indicative of an elevated level of joy or praise, and a stirring of emotions (as compared with speaking or talking), just as celebratory dancing would be, in comparison with walking. It both expresses the response that the full realization of God's love and mercy can evoke within an individual, as well as the supreme degree of worship and thanksgiving of which God is worthy.

I believe that He (God) orders us to sing in light of the fact that He realizes that singing can assist us with recollecting words. 

(So we ought to sing words that God needs us to recall and try to remember tunes). Can you tell that I'm big on memorizing? I love memorizer.me, not just to help me memorize Bible verses, but even with the lyrics of hymns and Christian songs!

He additionally realizes that singing can assist us with connecting sincerely with words. 

He realizes that singing can assist us in utilizing words to show and express our solidarity. 

Be that as it may, recollect, it's the gospel, not music, that joins us as one.
