Sentimental lyrics set to simple melodies, ideal for anyone raised on pop radio and the notion that hymns are "old-fashioned"
"Mighty Is Our God," "Ancient of Days"
Is worship "powerful" to the extent that it cuts itself off from previous Christian musical and liturgical traditions-monastic chant, classical chorale, Negro spirituals, black gospel, and Protestant hymnody included?
This style, which began in the early '70s as a means of appealing to youth, has now become the norm for adult-oriented worship.
