Still opinion. Church worship forms should not be held up as measures of separation (I'm not accusing of Aigner is doing that). I love using a hymnal. And I love many more recent songs that are not in any hymnal and are not likely to be so any time in the near future. I don't criticize either method.

Ashamed of Jesus! of that Friend On whom for heaven my hopes depend! It must not be! be this my shame, That I no more revere His name. -Joseph Grigg (1720-1768)

Failed to pick up a hymnal this morning as the AV guys had trouble with the lyrics on the screen.  Oops.  And I've learned to read music well from singing from hymnals--they are humbling in how difficult it is to pick up the TB lines in a lot of the older hymns.  And then to go through old hymnals and the gems (and garbage) of that era....
