Songs from Micah

This is the thirty-third entry in a series on Songs from the Books of the Bible.

Southern Gospel songs focus on many of the highest themes known to mankind—songs of Salvation, the Cross, the Resurrection, and eternity. But critics claim that they focus on these themes to the exclusion of other Biblical themes which are appropriate and perhaps necessary to address in song.

For how many chapters in Micah can we find Southern Gospel songs addressing their themes?

  • Micah 4:3: See Isaiah 2:4
  • Micah 5:2: Oh Bethlehem Town (Martins)
  • Micah 5:2: It All Began in Bethlehem (Kyla Rowland & Deliverance)
  • Micah 5:2: Bethlehem Morning (Sandi Patty, Larry Ford, Ladye Love Smith)

What others come to mind?
