Unneccessary Modernisation

Over the last few weeks, I've sung both the old and new version of "Oh, the deep, deep love of Jesus". And I can't see any reason whatsoever why it was modernised (while keeping the traditional language), except to make one of the more distinctivey-tuned (but still very singable) hymns sound the same as 90% of the contemporary songs. Which is surely a bad thing - some variety is good.
