It’s just more of the same ol’ thing. There is little I detest more at Mass (other than talking in Church and word changes in the liturgy) than music that praises the congregation rather than praising the Lord. It seems that lately I have been subjected to this penance. Last Sunday’s examples are Blessed are They, complete with chorus line “We are the light of the world,” and They Will Know We Are Christians by Our Love. Others include Here I Am Lord, where we sing God’s part, and Gather Us In, which makes no mention of God.

Maybe this game by Jeff Miller will allow me to take out my frustration. I can’t understand why we can’t just sing songs like Holy God We Praise Thy Name. I would bet more people would sing if we did that.
