Christmas Carols

With less than a week to go until Christmas, we'll see, or rather hear more Christmas songs over the radio.

But at Mass, there is a problem I have noticed and it only pertains to one song: "Hark the Herald Angels Sing." In either the third verse, the lyrics read: "born to raise the sons of earth, born to give them second birth." However, in the "hymnal" (to use the word lightly), the words have been changed to read: "born to raise us from the earth, born to give us second birth." If it helps, the music book is published by OCP (says a lot right there).

Why the need to alter good hymns to include a PC agenda? Is there nothing that won't be changed to suit PC agendas?
