You ever get that feeling that the music director has picked hymns just to piss you off?
This is a rare problem at A Certain Church, because the music director is a sensible man, who won’t make us sing some of the funkier, syncopated songs out of Lift Every Voice and Sing II because he realises what a train wreck the congregation will make out of it. Oddly enough, this also applies to #6 in LEVAS II, which is Lift Every Voice and Sing.
Well, we had a combined event this weekend, and the other parish got to pick the music.
Shine, Jesus, Shine was the closing hymn.
I do not sing Shine, Jesus, Shine.
I just don’t. And you can’t make me.
