Hymns for Today

Driving to church this morning I found myself flipping between Christian radio stations more than normal. It seemed that every song played was repetitive, trivial, and focused on “me.” This is not about style … it is about the lyrics. Worship songs and “hymns” that do not draw us to consider God may be nice, but they usually fall short of provoking true worship. Often only making me “feel better”. I wonder if the satire of Songs for the Lukewarm church might help explain things? Or the similar list of “hymns” here? Of course, you might miss the point if you have never heard the original hymn. I guess I’m a bit reflective today, and just wondering once again if it might be possible that what we sing infects us with a passion robbing view of living the Christian life.
