It’s such a blessing to look back and now say “ I have truly been re-formed!” I have visited many places of worship where this kind of “I will make it up as I go along, so you try to follow” is common. One must ask, “Do these “quicky” very shallow do nothing tunes bring glory to whom? This snipit was a perfect example of such silliness.
7b“We shall in the end have a mass of corrupting religious poetry against which the church will have to wage a sore contest. The danger is that of habituating the taste of Christians to a very vapid species of pious doggerel (nonsense, drivel), containing the most diluted possible traces of saving truth, suitable to the most infantile faculties supplemented by a jingle of vain repetitions.” (R.L Dabney, 1876)
