That's "Christ our God to earth descendETH," thank you very much.

The Subcommitte on Music and the Liturgy has released a powerpoint outlining its recommendations for liturgical music guidelines in the US.

Part of it reads rather like an examination of conscience for your hymnal:

They go on to pick on a few specific hymns, such as the following:

Sing Praise to Our Creator
The original text spoke of being “baptized into his grace,” but was changed for the sake of vertical inclusively to: “baptized in living grace.” What does this mean?

"What does this mean?" I think we've all been wondering that for a long time. Glad they're finally asking.

(HT: several blogs, including this one, and an IM conversation)
