A few things;
I'm not a methodist so I'm not a fan with Wesley's lyrics to Jesus Christ is risen today sung as "Christ the lord is risen today", this is because the 14th century original text with the "alleluias" are far better.
And plus i'm not typical on the contemporary songs because they sound as if they're secular songs.
What's yours? Any suggestions? Changes? Add-ons?
I will post another list very soon
