Why no hymn lyrics on screen this general conference?

Speaking of that, is it my imagination, or have they gone back to single-language and not try to switch languages during the conference?

I think one of the goals of the new hymn book is to unify the numbers.

I'm sure a "block" will be set aside for "local" hymns, such as America the Beautiful (hymn #338), but the "international" ones will all be the same number.

It was an interesting experiment, but conference is back to English.

Oddly, enough the words were on the screen for the last choir number. I'm not sure about the rest of the conference, since I tend to listen rather than watch.

We watched the entire session via lds.org - this was the only hymn that had the words on-screen for the session.
