Hymnal Transition FailPosted: September 4, 2012
On Sunday morning I was really excited to see that one of the communion hymns was “Lord, Thee I Love with All My Heart.” However, I learned the hymn using The Lutheran Service Book (LSB) and we were singing from The Lutheran Hymnal (TLH). No biggie, right? Wrong. Apparently the two settings (tunes?) are just different enough to have me become completely lost while singing. To make matters worse, the congregation hadn’t sang the hymn very often so they got lost as well. Our joyful noise to the Lord was more of a confused mumble.
