Songs from II Thessalonians

This is the fifty-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 II Thessalonians can we find Southern Gospel songs addressing their themes?

  • II Thes. 3:13: Cheer the Weary Traveler (Cathedrals, Kingsmen, Rebels Quartet) (allusion)
  • II Thes. 3:13: Hold On, Weary Pilgrim (Melody Boys Quartet) (allusion)

What others come to mind?
