Songs from II and III John

This is the sixty-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.

  • III John 4: Leave a Legacy (Collingsworth Family) (allusion)

  1. The only one that comes to mind with that aforementioned verse is ‘Leave A Legacy’ from the Collingsworth family. I saw it on YouTube but I don’t know if that one fits either.

    • Well, it’s close enough to the spirit of the passage that I’ll count it as an allusion.
