"I noticed an article recently in a Christian publication claiming that a number of well known, much-used worship songs were actually unbiblical. The writerís arguments concerning specific songs were not particularly convincing, but it did raise an issue that affects all those of us involved in leading and participating in church worship: how much do we take care to ensure what we sing is true? And does it really matter anyway? (...)"

There are those who might insist that whatever we do in church ought to be positive and uplifting. And I suppose such people would have trouble with singing the blues in church. The problem with this is that so much biblical prayer is simply crying before God.

What else did Hannah do when she went to the sanctuary at Shiloh (I Samuel 1:1-28)? She couldn’t have a baby and she poured out her tears right there in church where the priest Eli, and everyone else, could hear her. Eli thought it was disgraceful, but where else are you going to cry if you can’t cry before God in church?
