Praise and Wrongly-Directed Worship Songs
It’s no secret to readers of this blog and my clergy colleagues that I really don’t like contemporary praise and worship music. But I do appreciate self-deprecating humor and ones that point out the tendency of praise music to praise one’s self or become performance rather than praise.
So here’s a video for you that if you know any P&W songs, or if you avoid P&W songs, you will totally get.

This is a parody performance of some contemporary worship songs. Here’s the basic titles of the parodies so you can see which of your favorite worship songs they are satirizing.
- I could sing of your love on Sundays.
- I surrender some.
- I stand amazed at my hairdo.
- How Great is This Song.
- Savior, I don’t need a Savior. I’m busy livin’ my life.
- I sung this song for years. And I just go, go through the motions.
- I exalt me.
