Here is a brief but superb comment by Tozer on reverent worship. (“Many of our popular songs and choruses in praise of Christ are hollow and unconvincing.

The whole thing is in the mood of the love ditty, the only difference being the substitution of the name of Christ for that of the earthly lover. How different and how utterly wonderful are the emotions . . ..” You really should read the whole thing.)
