1. Good hymns focus on God; bad hymns focus on the self.
2. Good hymns use words and themes from Scripture or Tradition; bad hymns use words and themes from 1960s psychobabble
3. Good hymns treat transcendent concepts; bad hymns treat immanent concepts.
4. Good hymns employ sacred diction; bad hymns employ vulgar diction
