Music was an essential part of the worship of ancient Israel and of the early Christian liturgy because of its powerful effect upon our human experience and its ability to raise mind and heart to God. Throughout both the Old and New Testaments of the Bible, one can find passages that were once parts of ancient hymns and songs. The 2016 Printery House wall calendar Hymns of the Bible features each month some of the most beautiful of these ancient songs for your reflection and prayer. May these hymns taken from the inspired Word of God be your companion throughout the year and assist you in making a joyful noise to the Lord! This year’s calendar is printed on very high quality matte finish paper that is easy to write on and erase! Available as a wall calendar, desk calendar, and/or pocket calendar.Share This:
