Few people in this world write songs for congregational Christian worship services. So it’s no wonder that some strange responses may come when someone says “I write worship songs.” With that in mind, here are 10 things that are similar to statements I’ve heard or that fellow worship songwriters have heard, and later repeated to me. I offer these simply for a weekend’s amusement, and not with any feeling of resentment. It’s an honor to write songs for the Lord.
What People Say When Someone Responds “Yes, I Write Worship Songs”:
10. But what is your real job?
9. Have you written any regular songs?
8. Hey, so what is a “fount of every blessing?” And an Ebenezer?
7. I think I still have some Stryper cassettes in my garage.
6. Did you write “Shout To The Lord”?
5. Do you know who wrote “Shout To The Lord”?
4. I wrote a worship song once. It’s called “God’s Love Came From Above Like A Dove No Need To Shove.”
3. What did you say your real job was, again?
2. I wish we could just sing the old songs. Like “As The Deer.”
1. Well, bless your heart.
