Songs from II Timothy

This is the fifty-fifth 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 Timothy can we find Southern Gospel songs addressing their themes?

  • 2 Timothy 1:8: Timothy’s Burden (Martins)
  • 2 Timothy 2:3-4: I Am a Soldier Today (McKameys)
  • 2 Timothy 2:3-4: Don’t Give Up the Fight (Hoppers)
  • 2 Timothy 2:3-4: I Am A Soldier (Kyla/Barry Rowland and Deliverance)
  • 2 Timothy 3:4: Battle-Scarred Soldier (Bishops)
  • 2 Timothy 4:2: Preach (Talley Trio)
  • 2 Timothy 4:2: Preach the Word (Gold City)
  • 2 Timothy 4:5: There is Much to Do (McKameys)
  • 2 Timothy 4:6-7: Crown of Bright Glory (Squire Parsons, Greater Vision)
  • 2 Timothy 4:7: Finish Well (McKameys)
  • 2 Timothy 4:13: Timothy’s Burden (Martins)
