Bible Songs

Before He went to the Garden of Gethsemane to suffer for our sins, the Savior sang a hymn with His Apostles (see Matt. 26:preface, Matt. 26:20–39). It is believed that the hymn was one of some special songs in the Old Testament. To find out what they were called and who wrote many of them, first read these sentences about music. If a sentence is true, place the letter under True in the correspondingly numbered box above the sentences, and the letter under False in the box with the same number below the sentences. If the sentence is false, place the letter under False in the correspondingly numbered box above the sentences and the letter under True in the box with the same number below the sentences.
