If It Ain’t Broke…

I dislike the practice of re-writing the beautiful poetry of some of the old hymns, supposedly because people don’t understand the lyrics as they were written.  I’m glad to see Dr Doug Bookman defend that most re-written and butchered of beautiful old hymns – Come Thou Fount. You can read it here.

    I must agree, I only discovered the hymns after I left the charismatic church and I found them more spiritually edyfying than any contemporary chorus.oes that sound a bit pompous ? hope not!

    No, I think it is a common and just sentiment. Most people, after some exposure, notice the profound differences.

    So you follow Bookman as well! He sure did a good job on this one.
