When it comes to church music, I can be kind of old school. I prefer older hymns to newer contemporary praise songs most of the time. An older hymn usually has more depth and is overall more thoughtful on biblical content. Some of the more contemporary praise music in my opinion can sound like something teens write when they are in a superficial dating relationship that does not last long. Again, this is my opinion.
That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now I’m found,
was blind but now I see!
He groaned upon the tree?
Amazing pity! grace unknown!
And love beyond degree!
(Alas! and Did My Savior Bleed)
And that is the legacy that a couple of dead hymn writers wanted to leave to us. They are now singing in genuine, transparent, perfect, and undistracted amazement. And we are preparing to sing with them in eternal amazement as we sojourn on this earth.
