Ponderings – May 14, 2021

We sing great songs in the church!

The songs inspire and encourage us in our faith. It is sad that on occasion we don’t really mean the words we are singing. So perhaps we would be more comfortable if the titles were changed. How do these titles for familiar hymns grab you?

• “I Surrender Some”
• “There Shall Be Sprinkles of Blessings”
• “Fill My Spoon, Lord”
• “Oh, How I Like Jesus”
• “I Love to Talk About Telling the Story”
• “Take My Life and Let Me Be”
• “It is My Secret What God Can Do”
• “There is Scattered Cloudiness in My Soul Today”
• “Onward, Christian Reserves”
• “Where He Leads Me, I Will Consider Following”
• “Just As I Pretend to Be”
• “When the Saints Go Sneaking In”
• “Sit Up, Sit Up for Jesus”
• “A Comfy Mattress Is Our God”
• “Oh, for a Couple of Tongues to Sing”
• “Amazing Grace, How Interesting the Sound”
• “Lord, Keep Us Loosely Connected to Your Word”
• “Praise God from whom All Affirmations Flow”
• “My Hope Is Built on Nothing Much”
• “O, God, Our Enabler in Ages Past”
• “Pillow of Ages, Fluffed for Me”
• “All Hail the Influence of Jesus’ Name!”
• “When Peace, Like a Trickle”
• “I’m Fairly Certain that My Redeemer Lives”
• “What an Acquaintance We Have in Jesus”
• “My Faith Looks Around for Thee”
• “Blessed Hunch”
• “Above Average Is Thy Faithfulness”
• “Spirit of the Living God, Fall Somewhere Near Me”
• “Blest Be the Tie that Doesn’t Cramp My Style”

I needed to do some confessing after I typed this list. You too?
