How Well Do You Know Your Hymns?

Ronnie Page has an excellent column by this name in U.S. Gospel News. Here is the link, but since the future of the newspaper and thus the website is uncertain, I will make mention of some of the best here.

Dentist’s Hymn: Crown Him With Many Crowns
Tailor’s Hymn: Holy, Holy, Holy
Optometrist’s Hymn: Open My Eyes That I Might See
Massage Therapist’s Hymn: He Touched Me
Pilot’s Hymn: I’ll Fly Away
Parolee’s Hymn: I’m Free Again
Gossip’s Hymn: Pass It On

That prompted me to compose my own list of Southern Gospel songs that fit various professions:

Car Salesman’s Hymn: Little is Much
Car Technician’s Hymn: You Better Run
Argument Hymn: He Said
Car Accident Survivor’s Song: Until I Start Looking Ahead
Dynamite Technician’s Hymn: The Walls Come Down
Groundskeepers’ Hymn: The Ground is Level
Psychologist’s Hymn: I’m Losing My Mind
Volunteer’s Hymn: Excuses
Paparazzi Hymn: Trying to Get a Glimpse
Nursery Supervisor Hymn: We Will Be Changed
