|H-E-R-O, God is my Hero|

The messages in the songs are not doctrinally objectionable. The songs are catchy enough. They convey an enthusiasm for Christian living which wasn’t necessarily evident in the last Primary presentation I sat through. Most importantly, my kids love these songs, and sing them with gusto. I have to wonder: why can’t Primary songs do this?
Our Primary songs focus, it seems, on instruction. Very few of them muster anything other than sleepiness. The notable exception I can think of in the last few years is Scripture Power, which almost always elicited a shushing or a “let’s be more reverent” from a Primary chorister. Maybe the problem is that our songs are written for Sundays. I can certainly understand a desire for teaching Sabbath decorum, but by limiting our children’s music to ballads, maybe we are doing them a disservice.
What do you think?
