Was in a Christian bookstore in Nashville the other day. They had on quiet easy listening instrumental versions of Christian hymns and songs. One of these was "My Jesus, I love thee".
It irritated me at the time and now I think I know why. The words of this hymn are very serious and should, in my opinion, be sung seriously and prayerfully as part of our worship and self-offering to God. Turning that into easy listening that is just "nice" seemed to devalue the depth of this wonderful old hymm.
What do others think?
