My daughter was in the chorus so I enjoyed that.

I think the lyrics may haunt me forever, though.

"And he shall reign forever and ever.
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Forever! Hallelujah"

Sometimes, repetition works.
Yes it does, but please keep in mind that when you send your kids to public school you are not 'handing them over' to god-hating fascists.

True. They're "gods-loving fascists." Excellent clarification.

Please, everyone knows the school system is socialist, not fascist.

I thought it would be more politically correct to not argue such inconsequential details.

Not a Christmas song, but I need to get this off my chest.

I don't like 'Our God is an awesome God'.

It implies the existence of other gods. (And yes, I know that some passages of the OT do the same thing--e.g. 'you shall have no other Gods before me--but it still bothers me.)
And what is good, Phaedrus, and what is not good? Need we ask anyone to tell us these things?

It bothers me becuase it's become part of the Christian Pop Culture fluff and bubbles

Blessed are the peace makers.
The biblical sense of Peace is not merely a lack of war or violence.
The Bible teaches more than one sense of peace. Sometimes I wonder why Christians hate John Lennon so much. He didn't claim he obeyed the whole Bible, he just spoke out for what he believed in and there was some overlap with Biblical priorities. So why not value that? He sang a Christmas song about peace. What's with the fault finding?

I've got a B3 layered with an over-driven guitar as my primary organ setup, and I like to fade it into a huge pipe organ setting and get the sound guy to crank the subs so I can get the floor shaking.

(We're going to do O Come All Ye Faithful close to the Third Day version, and I'm looking forward to some major pipe organ sound...)

Not to start a theological discussion but compare the words to the song to the words in this Psalm

Psa 95:3 For the LORD [is] a great God, and a great King above all gods.

I sort of had the same thought as you till I saw this verse and realized there's virtually no difference.
