My guess, and this is just a personal opinion because I have no insider information, is that the person who used to do it retired or left and was not replaced. Now obviously, if they wanted to do it, they could get someone else to do it.
However, I actually believe the explanation is the same for both the hymn lyrics and the scripture quotes: English is no longer the primary language of the members around the world.
That said, until this conference not every talk displayed scriptures. Most did not. I think it may have been a preference of the speaker, some sort of special request they could make if they wished to include that, or more likely, some of the pictures we have seen in the past. It will be interesting to see what happens next conference.
But I don't think the lyrics are coming back. Again, my own personal opinion. I would be delighted to be wrong.
