For instance, aced by "Here I raise mine Ebenezer," in Come Thou Fount, many have changed the lyrics, to accommodate our Biblical illiteracy.
That's a choice we have to confront in such things. Sadly, it probably is true that most church attenders think Ebenezer's last name is Scrooge, and don't know why we're singing about raising him. So we face a choice, don't we?
- Dumb-down the lyrics; or
- Smart-up the worshipers
UPDATE: Wesley didn't care for anyone "improving" his hymns.
