songs for worship

I’ll post some photographs of the Yosemite trip as soon as I have a chance to. In the meantime, I am posting a link to article on modern songs for worship, which I read from my friend Steven’s blog. I love Issac Watts’ hymns and I wholeheartedly agree with the author of this article.

I love this section: “Watts’ hymns are essentially rhymed theology, and this I suppose is a leading reason that explains why so many of his hymns are absent from our hymnals today–we are not accustomed to theology, and we are not accustomed to thinking.”

Often songs written today are not deep, and the often the ones which contain great lyrical content lack melodic beauty.

The article is authored by the pastor of the Cornerstone Church of Skippack, and it is called Alas! And Did My Savior Bleed?
