The Revelation Of The Soul

לזכות חי' אביבה בת שיינדל מרים וכל משפחתה

The pasuk says למען יזמרך כבוד ולא ידום - In order that our "kavod" sing to you and will not be silent. The word "kavod" means neshama. Shira is the revelation of the soul from within the body. That is the elevation of the shira - a person goes out of the state of mere speech into heightened song. "Song" is the language of Torah, as it says "כתבו לכם את השירה הזאת". Torah also arouses the neshama from within the body. 

This world is nature, which like our physical bodies. A miracle, when we say shira, is the awakening of the "neshama" of the world from within the body of the world that we call nature.
