The first line of one of the most popular Biblical passages for a musical setting. Most high-church Christians, when they hear …

And Mary said: my soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord …

… they know it’s the Magnificat.

Another popular verse for a musical setting is this famous line from the prophet Micah. Most don’t know which prophet it’s from.

You have been told, O man, what is good, and what the LORD requires of you; Only to do the right and to love goodness, and to walk humbly with your God.

And maybe you remember this Biblical phrase from Ash Wednesday, not so long ago:

For our sake he made him to be sin who did not know sin, so that we might become the righteousness of God in him.
