Here is a short article by Carl Trueman, pertaining to what Christians sing in Worship. A year or two back, prompted by a NN discussion, I informally polled a many of our large number of the "20 somethings" in our congregation as to why they were attending our Church, that is, a plain-jane conservative Reformed church that sings Psalms exclusively and only acappella; instead of one with a more contemporary worship style. One young man surprised me when he said something like 'Here, I don't feel like somethings wrong with me if I am not always happy...'
Such is the topic of this article:

EDITED TO ADD (Of course I recommend the Psalms!!)
If lack of lament in worship music is a problem; what are your recommendations for tackling the problem?
