Harmony

  A song for pilgrims ascending to Jerusalem.  A psalm of David. How wonderful and pleasant it is when brothers live together in harmony!

O Holy Night

But the people of God will sing a song of joy, like the songs at the holy festivals. You will be filled with joy, as when a flutist leads a group of pilgrims to Jerusalem, the mountain of the LORD— to the Rock of Israel.  Isaiah 30:29 Elizabeth gave a glad cry and exclaimed to …
