Angry Eastwood: That Song

I know there are a few songs/hymns that you don’t like to sing in church.  Trust me; there are some that get under my skin, too.  They can’t all be gems.


This Angry Eastwood meme was posted on the United Methodist Memes Facebook page, and a few of you might faint when you see some of the titles that made it to this list as songs/hymns you love to hate:

  • Many Gifts, One Spirit
  • Here I Am, Lord
  • O, For a Thousand Tongues to Sing
  • Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing
  • He Walks With Me
  • Little Brown Church in the Wildwood
  • We are the Church
  • Majesty, Worship His Majesty
  • How He Loves Us
  • Hymn of Promise
  • How Great Thou Art
  • Lord of the Dance
  • Help Us Accept Each Other
  • Victory in Jesus
  • I Was There to Hear Your Borning Cry
  • O God Our Help in Ages Past
  • The Advent Candle Song
  • There is a Fountain Filled With Blood
  • God of the Sparrow, God of the Whale
  • Wonderful Words of Life
  • Jesus is Coming Soon
  • Oh Happy Day
  • Waterfall
  • Come, Thou Almighty King
  • The Old Rugged Cross
  • Our God is an Awesome God
  • Were You There?
  • The Lord’s Prayer
  • Amazing Grace
  • Rock of Ages
  • When the Roll is Called Up Yonder
  • Standing in the Need of Prayer
  • Freely, Freely

So, what have we learned today?  Judging from this list, there will be some United Methodists in hell.  My favorite response someone gave has to be: Any hymn after the third verse.  I usually advocate for singing every verse of a hymn, and often wish I’d changed my mind.

Which song/hymn would you add?

Stay blessed…john
