My Saviour, My God by Aaron Shust harvests the lyrics of the hymn ‘I am not skilled to understand’ adds a chorus in case you couldn’t figure out the original was about Jesus, and is set to straightforward pop/rock tune.
It’s one way to get substantial lyrical sentiment into contemporary churches.

The lyrics:
I am not skilled to understand
What God has willed, what God has planned
I only know at his right hand
Stands one who is my Savior
I take him at His word and deed
Christ died to save me: this I read
And in my heart I find a need
Of Him to be my Savior
That He would leave His place on high
And for sinful man to die
You count it strange, so once did I
Before I knew my Savior
My Savior Loves, my Savior Lives
My Savior’s always there for me
My God; He was, my God; He is
My God; is always gonna be
Yes, living, dying: let me bring
My Strength, my solace from this spring
That He who lives to be my King
Once died to be my Savior
(Repeat Chorus)
Repeat verse 1 to finish.
