Maybe a song by the Gettys would be a more apt choice. It keeps them in the lyrical and structural vein of hymns familiar —while ushering them into more modern melodies and music unfamiliar.
The Key to Choosing Songs for Your Congregation
For example, if your church is used to Hillsong or Bethel, but you want to introduce them to the folkier, more earthy side of worship music such as Sandra McCracken or Bifrost Arts , a song by All Sons and Daughters could be a nice middle ground to help you transition. How many new songs does your church introduce each year, or each month? What do you keep in mind when selecting new songs? This is a guest post by music professionals Cody Norris and Stephen Folden. I do not lead music. I want to though.
We have a large hymn book that has over hymns…and well, we only use about 20 hymns for the past 5 years I have attended there. I personally have sung a different hymn that is in our hymn book that no one in the church has heard of. I sing a special hymn once a month.

Choosing Contemporary Music: Seasonal, Topical, Lectionary Indexes (Leading Congregational Song)
When peace like a river, attendeth my way, When sorrows like sea billows roll Whatever my lot, thou hast taught me to say It is well, it is well, with my soul. There are a couple of ways you can go about finding the middle ground. Many modern worship bands have taken traditional hymns and created newer, more contemporary arrangements. Some have even added a new chorus or bridge! If you start singing a hymn, many people are going to expect the traditional version.
You should be able to sing the traditional arrangement along with the new chord progression or instrumentation with ease. Oh what a Savior, wonderful Jesus Death could not hold you; you are victorious Praise to the risen King. Experiment with different chord progressions and try your hand at writing new choruses or bridges.
Probably the easiest way to incorporate traditional music and contemporary music into your service is simple: just play both.
