Ten worst hymns?

Joe Carter at First Thoughts offers his nominees for the ten worst hymns of all time. I wouldn't know from firsthand experience (despite my Catholic school education) but, judging from his list, Catholics do not have as rich a heritage of hymnody as do Protestants. Carter's list includes only three songs with which I am familiar ("I Am the Bread of Life," "On Eagle's Wings," and "Here I Am, Lord") and none of the ten appear to have come from a more classical era (but maybe that's the point).
