The Magic of Music
The simplest way I know to explain how God can comfort a troubled soul simply by hearing a beautiful song is “magic”, simply “God’s magic.” Scholars have produced a large body of scientific research on the power of music to soothe and to heal, books have been written, we all talk about it – but only God can really explain it.
The Classic Hymns are Filled with Bible Truths
I count it one of my biggest blessings that I grew up attending a Southern Baptist Church and each week sang the old hymns of the church. The early hymn writers used the Bible as their primary source of inspiration. So the lyrics to these beautiful hymns are packed with Bible truths and phrases.
Below are some of my favorite hymns. Listen and let God touch your heart through His magic of music.
And don’t stop with just these few. If you enter the title of any hymn into a search engine, you will find an abundance of styles from which to choose. And if you do not know the titles, type in “List of Christian Hymns” or “Most Loved Christian Hymns”.
