Discipleship Bible Study on 1st, 2nd, and 3rd John

Songs and Hymns from 1 John

by Dr. Ralph F. Wilson

First John has a few verses which have inspired songs. I couldn't find any songs for 2 John and 3 John. Some I have included primarily for the lyrics, others are quite singable. Doubtless you'll know of others. Tunes and words to most out-of-copyright hymns can be found at Hymntime (CyberHymnal). Tunes and words for many newer songs and choruses can be found using CCLI.com's SongSelect service.
