Bible Lyrics

by Amanda Flinner

You won't hear these songs on Christian radio, but they are as full of biblical figures, moral lessons and apocalyptic visions as any Sunday sermon, and some of the preachers may surprise you. Can you identify who sang these biblical lyrics?

  • Alan Dartford from Kentgood quiz challenging worthy
  • Ebby from Planet EarthTo everything
    There is a season
    And a time to every purpose, under heaven
    A time to be born, a time to die
    A time to plant, a time to reap
    A time to kill, a time to heal
    A time to laugh, a time to weep
    And a time to every purpose, under heaven
