OCICBW... is continuing it's attempt to compile a definitive list of the greatest songs of all time that have some kind of religious content. They can be from any genre and any religion. They most certainly don't have to be restricted to just the Christian music business but suggestions of Christian music that is actually not painful to listen to would be interesting.
There are some rules which will be applied strictly:
1) There must be words (instrumentals will not be accepted).
2) Songs written to be hymns or worship songs are excluded (but not songs that have been later adopted as such).
3) No settings of previously written texts will be accepted (e.g. a classical composer's setting of a latin mass).
