God created everyone, he doesn’t discriminate. No matter who you are, you are welcome into His presence. He is the God of all languages, all races, and all nations. On the last day, when we get before the throne of God, where we come from won’t matter. We would all be worshipping God with one voice.
Revelation 7:9 says ‘After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;’
As long as the song is coming from the heart of a sincere worshipper, no matter the language, God would dwell in the praise of such a person.
