'Songs preach a lot' claim members of the Anglican Church in North-East Congo (DRC). This article analyses what these songs preach and how they convey their message. It examines the theology of the texts as sung in their musical and social context. The songs fall into two broad categories: western hymns translated by missionaries and contemporary songs often composed locally or nationally. They have different but overlapping theologies and functions within worship. Heaven emerges as a central motif in both categories, presenting an eschatological oral theology, which offers comfort, escape and social comment.
