Music in the Bible

The importance of music in the Bible is shown very simply by the fact that the verb “to sing” (with related words such as “song”, and. so forth) is one of the most commonly used words in the Bible. It occurs 309 times in the Old Testament and thirty-six in the New. Source

There are said to be ten spiritual levels of prayer, and above it all is music!

Please add any melody that moves you, or song you just can't seem to forget!
