Worship Song Mad Libs

A friend just guided me to this little idea posted at the Wittenburg Door.

Though it has a “tone,” I think it speaks to some of the issues we should be attending to in worship songwriting today.

I passionately believe that he power of today’s worship songs is their simplicity, their recovery of intimacy and the Song of Solomic tradition in worship lyricism, the emotional integration (and healing) of the Church, and the power of the Hebrew idea of the always-necessary “new song” that every generation must revisit.

Yet, may this sarcastic play on the issue of over simplified, or less reflective lyricism, spur us on as from one who gives us good counsel, but says it with a big bite of irony.
