They sing it every week at church:
From my experience, that’s pretty accurate. Just for the hell of it, I searched for a website with popular Christian song lyrics. I found a list of lyrics. The first one I clicked on was this. This was the second. Maybe there are more complex lyrics somewhere, but I have yet to hear them.
It’s not like most secular pop lyrics are that much better, but don’t expect to find originality or challenging lyrics in a Christian song. When I was visiting churches, it was so incredibly easy to mock the lyrics of the songs the worship bands sang.
Maybe I’m just biased because I spent most of high school listening to Ani DiFranco…
Just replace those words with grace, sinner, love, redemption, humility, serve, and God.
Now, go forth in the comments and write a Christian bestseller!
