Words Matter

Sometimes we are more enamored by a song with a feel good rhythm we pay little attention to the words. Other times we have sung a song so often we lose sight of the words. Even more, we often will sing songs we have sung for years with little reference to the orthodoxy or lack thereof. Then we object to something new without taking the time with the words. Worse still is the discovery of an old hymn with great lyrics we refuse to sing because we have not heard it before. Add to that the contemporary move to romanticize lyrics creating shallow worship music. Mark posted an interview with Matt Redman worth watching.
