Singing Old and New

Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: When I travel, I often take something that might seem unusual. It’s a book of worship choruses or perhaps a hymnal. When I’m busy and on the road, I need to take time to sing to the Lord.

I find that both hymns and choruses have value. A lot of the repetitive, simple choruses that we sing today are meaningful expressions of love to the Lord.

So many hymns that come to us through the history of the church are rich in theology. They communicate with a depth that we don’t always see in contemporary choruses. I think abandoning hymns leads us to a shallow, emotionally-driven experience.

It may take more effort to sing “A Mighty Fortress Is Our God” than to sing a modern chorus, but the payoff of disciplining our minds to think great thoughts about God is well worth the effort.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.
