Leaders of the American Evangelical Laodicean Church last week announced the publication of a new hymnal. “This collection of hymns really captures the essence of our tradition,” said Presiding Bishop Luke W. Armm. “People in today’s society get uncomfortable with too much talk about commitment and dedication,” he continued, “they would rather have a religion they can turn on or off at will.”
Here is a listing of some of the selections found in this hymnal: “A Comfy Mattress is Our God” “I Surrender Some” “Blest be the Tie That Doesn’t Cramp My Style” “Just As I Am With Lots of Excuses” “My Hope is Built on Nothing Much” “O For a Couple of Tongues to Sing” “Onward Christian Reservists” “Self-Esteem to the World! The Lord is Come” “Spirit of God, Descend Upon Their Hearts” “Take My Life and Let Me Be” “There Shall be Sprinkles of Blessing” “When Peace Like a Trickle” “When the Saints Go Sneaking In” “Where He Leads Me, I will Consider Following” “Above Average is Thy Faithfulness” “Be Thou My Hobby” “I’m Fairly Certain That My Redeemer Lives” “Pillow of Ages, Fluffed for Me” and many more. For Heaven’s evaluation of this new hymnal, see Revelation 3:14-22.
