The music that we sing is not in the worship service to fill time! Most people I know can remember popular songs from their younger years. You can even see them remembering those good old days.... Songs can bring out our emotions to move around or to be quiet, yet these songs do not have much to offer except to make us feel good or sad. Hymns, on the other hand, are songs that exalt the Lord. There is a content to a hymn that is a message in itself concerning what God has done. And there are many hymns that can cause us to rejoice or feel sad, but their purpose is to be caught up into the presence of Almighty God as we recount what He has done.
